Fallturm - Drop Tower

There is a thought that I want to share with you,

A coincidence that came to my mind

Just an illusion, maybe

A naughty fantasy


That the story:

There are two buildings.

On the one hand the drop tower (Anti gravity facility) which you see here,

Nearby is the Universum (Science Center).

It appears to me that these two buildings are connected:

They seem to have a dialog with each other.

My thoughts are spinning lately and my imagination is going wild, but…

What if you take these building as symbols?

It seems like a tragic love story between a man and woman,

In sight but not capable to reach to each other.


The drop tower, 123 meters high, a male emblem in the field ready for firing.

He was long time alone waiting for a companion, just like Adam.

The “Universum” was build much later, I saw her skeleton when she was “created”.

Her design reminds me of the shell of a woman,

The sun shines on her, bright,

She is bathing in the blue lagoon.


He is looking at her from high above

Trying to get a glance,

Trying to tough her with his shadow.

He wants to loose control and discover the universe.

Think of the little people that visit her,

they make a fantastic symbol as well.


I have to laugh about it,

A silly idea,

But what if the architectures had a purpose behind it….
