Plan for a new tower.

The site of the former Yerevan Youth Center and tower was selected by the client as the previous building was in disrepair and the majestic views west toward Mt. Ararat was a suitable location for such a new and significant landmark. The city of Yerevan has been a haven for avant-garde architecture and monuments since the Soviet era.
