Foster + Partners has shared a series of updated images for The Tulip, a 305-meter-high tower and attraction in London. The latest renderings show more details of the tower’s base, as well as the project interiors. The design features a “bud-like scheme” and is intended to become a new public cultural and educational resource for Londoners and tourists alike. The Tulip is designed to include the Aspire educational facility operated by building owners J. Safra Group, as well as a glass-dome at the tip of the structure housing the Sky Bar. The project’s initial ideas call for sky bridges, internal glass slides and gondola pod rides on the building’s façade. Located across from Foster + Partners' skyscraper The Gherkin, the project’s base would include a small park and ground-floor pavilion and garden.
