Constructed with a steel endoskeleton and clad with lumber, the white-painted structure comes alive especially at night with dramatic embedded lighting design and projected images. Designed with the festival audience and hot climate in mind, The Tower of Twelve Stories casts a long shadow that serves as a canopy during the daytime. It is like a large stencil that sprays tiny humans into a shaped silhouette against the scorching sun. Or, a very large bounce board for photographers at the festival.
