Architect(s) : V. Bourgeois

The Eternit tower stood on the platform connecting the two sites of the Urbanism group.

It was a very bold design, consisting of a succession of asbestos cement pipes of decreasing diameter, rising towards the sky in the form of a helical ramp.

The ascending aspect was accentuated in the evening, with the help of a moving lighting system.

The whole structure, with a total height of 50 metres, consisted of 1270 Eternit pipes.
