Spire of Dublin, Ireland

Photograph by Paul Lindsay, National Geographic

The nearly 400-foot Spire of Dublin, built in 2002, stands in the center of Dublin City’s O’Connell Street. Part of a public space improvement project, the spire’s highly reflective stainless steel surface shines with both ambient and internal sources of light. The top can sway up to five feet under strong winds.
