Calgary Tower

Calgary Tower Formerly Husky Tower
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
190.8-meter (626 ft) free standing observation tower. It was built to celebrate Canada's Centennial in 1967. Designed by Architects W.G. Milne & A. Dale and Associates, and was designed to withstand earthquakes and winds of up to 161 km/h (100 mph). The column of the tower was built from an unprecedented continual pour of concrete. Pouring began May 15, 1967 and was completed 24 days later. A natural gas cauldron was added to the top in 1987 as a gift to celebrate the 1988 Olympics. It burned 24hours per day for the duration of the Olympics.
