Second in Cristina Parreño's Tectonics of Transparency series, The Tower was a temporary installation on the Rose Kennedy Greenway.  To align with the exhibition's infrastructure heritage theme, the glass tower served as a periscope, providing views previously obtained from the demolished elevated highway.  SGH provided structural design services for The Tower and the first Tectonics of Transparency installation, The Wall.
