About Us

Frank Lloyd Wright tried. We're doing this. The 'Tower of Britain' (aka 'The Great British Super Tower') is a proposed MILE TALL and mixed-use Arthurian megastructure that is to be erected in the British City of Manchester by a team of architects and engineers - and you. This record-breaking tower would be flanked by three or four mega-sculptures modelled on the Argonath monuments of Isildur and Anarion that are depicted in J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy saga, The Lord of the Rings.

Each of the Tower of Britain's 'guardian monuments' that surround the mile-high structure would rise to the height of Manhattan's One World Trade Centre skyscraper and would be assembled from prefabricated graphene-enhanced concrete components of each of their body parts. The individuals depicted by these 'Argonaths' would be selected by the British people from a list of national heroes like Boudicca, Winston Churchill, Florence Nightingale and Horatio Nelson.       

In what would be the world’s single largest NFT project, the Tower of Britain would be funded by tokenizing the skyscraper as an NFT, placing it on marketplaces like Opensea and exchanges like Coinbase where investors the world over would be able to purchase one of a million unique Tower NFTs towards our goal of raising the estimated £10 billion budget with which to erect this stupendous gigatower.

Conceived to be designed by a star-studded and blockbusting architectural 'Dream Team' comprised of Renzo Piano, Bjarke Ingels, Adrian Smith, Rem Koolhaas, Sir David Adjaye and Sir Norman Foster - and built to, among other things, inspire STEM engagement and reset the horizons of human endeavour - this 1660-metre tall engineering marvel would demolish prevailing notions of what is possible and bring us all face-to-face with our collective genius as a species.

Outfitted with mile-tall (and Virgin hyperloop-powered) ‘Velocicoaster’, 'Zumanjaro' and ‘Tower of Terror’ rides, Armani and Gucci hotels, Prada and Dior penthouses, Versace and Fendi apartments, Givenchy and Valentino IMAX theatres, Dolce & Gabbana workspaces, the Tower of Britain 'superscraper' would also feature shopping malls, bars and restaurants, observation decks and a brand-new British university - the University of Rochdale.

Among its numerous spin-offs, the Tower of Britain - as the world's leading tourist attraction - could:

- Double, or even triple, annual tourism to the UK and skyrocket Britain's GDP

- Launch Hyperloop and MAGLEV as a new form of global transportation

- Revolutionize our understanding and experience of the Earth's gravity

As the "Stonehenge of the 21st Century", this Tolkienian Tower of Britain would be built entirely of graphene-enhanced concrete and erected in a countryside setting in order to ensure that a visitor's view of its jaw-dropping mile-high dimensions would be unobscured by any surrounding structures.

Like a titanic global lighthouse, this colossal 5446-foot net-zero planetary beacon - a vertical city in its own right - would beckon millions of pilgrims towards its staggering proportions in a hypnotic stupor. As it soars into the heavens, sightseers would be left dazed by this supertower's gravity-defying magnificence and would find themselves able to do nothing more than behold its monumental magnitude in spellbound surrender.

Like the Stargate-type ‘portal’ that connects Vilnius in Lithuania and Lublin in Poland, each city in Britain would be linked by a ‘Tribute in Light’-style network of sky-high searchlights that would function like Tolkien’s Warning Beacons of Gondor. Through a spectacular succession of cascading ignitions — starting from Land’s End in the south and John o’ Groats in the north — this breathtaking display would converge on the City of Manchester in a stupendous national art installation and make it possible for the mile-tall Tower of Britain to be ‘seen’ from any location in the UK and as far away as France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
