Spire of Dublin

Next stop at 120m - i found it hard to believe it is so high.
In the middle of Dublin on O'Connell Street you will find this "needle" made of steel.

The Spire of Dublin, or its official title the Monument
of Light, is a large, pin-like monument 120 metres
(393 ft) in height. It is located on the site of the
former Nelson Pillar on O'Connell Street in the Irish capital, Dublin.

Designed by Ian Ritchie Architects, it is an elongated
cone of diameter 3m (10 ft) at the base, narrowing to
15cm (6 in) at the top. The world's tallest
sculpture[verification needed], it was originally
intended that the Spire be completed by 2000 in honour
of the new millennium, but construction was delayed
because of difficulty in obtaining planning permission
and environmental regulations. It is constructed from
eight hollow tubes of stainless steel and features a
tuned mass damper to counteract sway.



In the WS-section you can see it standing on O'Connell Street.
