Right next to the bridge stands a tower consisting of a number of different elements. Designed by Nicolas Schöffer, the ‘cybernetic tower’ was installed in 1961. It interacts with its surroundings via an electronic brain. Sensors allow it to transmit a series of data on noise, light intensity, heat and humidity. Depending on the data received, the electronic brain can set one of 64 aluminium ‘palms’ in motion, broadcast one of 12 musical sequences or light up the tower and the surrounding area with one of its 120 multi-colour projectors. The tower can also combine these different actions.
