Additional Information

For fabrication, the structure is a challenge to us as the Spinning top is lean which caused the center of balance is not in the point that was put in the ground. Our structure engineers have spent many days designing the structure and calculation it. In the both effort of the engineering team and our craftsmen, finally, the construction drawings were approved and the fabrication started. The mirror-polished finish reflected the ground and sky well. In winter, the snow view is much more attractive, and many visitors came to take photos with it.
