The six meter tall Monolith – completed in spring 2014 – consists of 24 frameless screens, wrapped in translucent mirror panels. These panels render the Monolith almost invisible at first glance and enhance it. Displaying the time of the day, the Monolith also fulfills the function of a central clock tower. Monolith is part of the overall concept of Vedaport, also focusing on the core topics knowledge and education, which are communicated via handwritten historically important quotes.
