New Orleans’ answer to the London Eye

The New Orleans firm Perez hopes to build this double-helix gondola-lift tower in time to celebrate the city’s 300th anniversary. Called the New Orleans Tricentennial Tower, the structure is wrapped in a double helix of gondola lifts, has two viewing platforms, and is designed to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the founding of the city which will be marked in 2018.
