The Towers of San Francisco: Raygun Gothic Rocketship, Ferry Building, and Coit Tower from the 19th, 20th, and 21st Centuries
First up is the Ferry Building Tower from 1898. It’s a straight-up, four-faced clock tower, the likes of which they’ve been building in Europe for 700 years.
Next up is Coit Tower from 1933. It’s from a woman who had a “special relationship” with firefighters, she had a thing for firefighters. It’s a little different.
Last up is the Raygun Gothic Rocketship from 2009. It’s very different.

What kind of new iconic (and ironic, that seems to be the trend) tower will we erect in the 22nd century?
