Vlooybergtoren

September 6, 2016


In the Belgian province of Flemish Brabant stood a wooden lookout post for taking in the view of the countryside and Kabouterbos forest.

But the tower was closed to the public after irreparable damage by arsonists.

Cue Belgian engineering firm Close to Bone, 13 tonnes of steel, and a “war against weight.”

The “Vlooybergtoren” stands at 11.28 metres tall, built on a galvanised substructure, and clad in weathering steel — a reference to the red-brown colour of the ironstone from the region.
