I360: an immense partnership for the highest ascending tower in the world
After construction of the prestigious London Eye in London in 2000, the same group of businesses that included Jacobs, Marks & Barfield, Hollandia and POMA, began the installation of the Brighton ascending tower I360.
This remarkable work is a world premiere. 162 metres high, with a capsule that rises up to138 metres above the ground, this seafront tourist attraction represents unrivalled technological prowess, linking engineering and innovation. The futuristic and unique design of the i360 will have an observation capsule equipped with curved windows and will be able to hold up to 200 visitors.
There will be a restaurant, boutique, exhibition area and specific installations to host events and conferences. The i360 will provide an exceptional panoramic view across the English Channel and the city.
