Digital tower construction

The digital tower and canopies will be a striking feature of Yagan Square and a landmark for the city.

The digital tower will be 45 metres high (approximately 13 storeys). The circular screen, which will wrap around the tower ‘bulrushes’, will be 30 metres in diameter x 14 metres high. A sub-station is concealed within the base of the tower that will power the whole Yagan Square precinct.

Installation of the digital tower columns is complete. The internal columns measure up to 35.5m high, while the external columns are between 41.5m and 45m high. The screen and nodes will be installed in the coming months.

The construction of the digital canopies is well progressed, with the external steelwork completed. The 'cassettes' - which will be fitted inside the steelwork providing shade as well as a digital canvas - will be installed in the coming weeks.
