Wood Sutro Tower Model
Completed in 1972, Sutro Tower is located atop Mount Sutro, overlooking San Francisco. At 977 feet, it is the tallest and most visible structure in the Bay Area. The three-pronged tower is recognizable from many neighborhoods, and is a familiar icon to many San Franciscans. A broadcast tower for TV and radio, it also connects us to the sky and the world above the clouds!
This tower design was drawn from engineering drawings and photographs, then simplified into this format. Laser cut from birch plywood. This model comes unassembled, but can be put together simply in about 5 minutes. Parts and instructions (and even glue dots!) are packaged in a clear sleeve. It is at scale 1"=50'.
