Description

10 metre high inverted glass spire rising from the seventh floor roof of the new Broadcasting House building. During the hours of darkness the cone is gently lit so that it glows. Every day, coinciding with the 10 o'clock news bulletin, a fine beam of light will project from its base approximately 900 metres into the night sky.
