Perhaps that&rsquo;s why it&rsquo;s so refreshing to see an observation tower that actually leads somewhere meaningful beyond an Instagram selfie frame: the Camp Adventure Observation Tower in Denmark.</p></em><br /><br /><p>While <a href="https://archinect.com/news/tag/354290/thomas-heatherwick" rel="nofollow" >Thomas Heatherwick</a>'s <a href="https://archinect.com/news/tag/1026195/the-vessel" rel="nofollow" >Vessel</a> has been a media darling (or pariah) for the last month, a similarly tall, arguably more elegant observation tower quietly popped up in a Dane forest.

The Camp Adventure Forest Tower, by Effekt

The Camp Adventure Forest Tower, designed by Copenhagen-based firm Effekt, begins with a long serpentine boardwalk that directs a scenic path through the trees before reaching the gently sloping ramp that is the centerpiece of the project. Once visitors walk to the very top of the 147-foot structure ((for comparison, the Vessel is 150 feet), they are greeted with view of the forest from all angles, thanks to its perfectly circular observation deck.
