I don´t consider this German design, its a nerd idiot construction. The problem is that the authority in power for AirTrafficSecurity is very independent and also responsible for the default Tower Design in the whole of Germany.

This situation sucks so much, because control towers can work as a signature building for the airport and the city of it.

This is typical German design....

This is going to be of my modell airport.. HAHAHAHA, just making a little joke, but towers are some nice special things in different kind of shapes, like the drums of Sydney, and the strange shape of Abu Dhabi..

But why to they have the same towers in Germany, like the new tower in Frankfurt, and the new tower of Berlin, was it a cheap and simple design or what..???????

I was thinking about compiling a list of air traffic control towers in the world by height.

The highest one in Paris CDG (north tower) is 112 metres tall.
Surprisingly hard to find some pictures..



The south one is 90 metres tall.
