|Lüntec-Tower and office building in the technology park, Lünen, yesterday
A former winding tower from the coal mine from 1922. Now the symbol from the Lüntec technology park. Mining stopped in 1992, the capsule on top was build in 1995 and the technolgy park opend as part of the structural change in the Ruhr district (German Ruhrgebiet).
Popularly called Colani-Ei, after the designer Luigi Colani and the egg-shape. Or it is called UFO. Seen from a distance it does actually look like.
I posted a lot of pictures from this "UFO tower" before, all with the label UFO
but for the first time I took this view with the sign
