the function of observing and analysing weathersituations turns the image of a measuring instrument into an architectural scale. the observation deck stands on tripod, supported by the stabilizing staircase.
the function of the ocular is replaced by a directional loop, directing the view to significant landmarks and explaining how the visual range informs about weather situations.
