The forest tower is a spectacular 45 meter high tower in Gisselfeld Kloster's forests close to the highest point in Zealand, Denmark. The view tower is designed by EFFEKT Architects and fulfills an ambition to create an aesthetic edifice and a unique nature experience, which is at the same time adapted to nature and built as sensitively as possible. Since the Forest Tower opened in 2019, more than 300,000 visitors have made their way and the project has become an attraction throughout Zealand.
The book is picture-borne and contains overwhelming photo series by photographer and architect Rasmus Hjortsh j, who has visited the Forest Tower both summer and autumn, interview with the architects behind and an essay written by Kristoffer Weiss.
The book is not only aimed at a professional audience but with its many impressive images to anyone who is interested in architecture. The book is a comprehensive documentation of one of the most talked about and award winning buildings in Danish architecture right now
