A collaboration between United Visual Artists and Massive Attack resulted in this wonderful, interactive installation on London's South Bank. The columns emitted light and sound in response to people's movement.

Portsmouth, Hampshire.

The Spinnaker Tower uses two large, white sweeping steel arcs to represent a sail in the wind. It was part of Portsmouth's plans for the Millennium, and should have been completed in 1999.
They didn't start building it till 2001 and it took 4 years to finish, by which time it was madly over-budget.

I love it.

An elevator sweeps you up the inside of the building and takes you to the viewing deck.
Just so that you can look down.

Down through the glass floor

to the ships below

and to the sea.
