By analyzing and subsequently synthesizing two aesthetically relevant aspects of the observation tower, the author seeks in this article to uncover the special nature and relevance that the observation tower has for aesthetics. The article aims to demonstrate (1) how the characteristics of this special work of architecture correspond to its mission to be the centre of surveying the landscape (the 'external' aspect), (2) what kind of insight into our own existence such experience may provide (the 'internal' aspect), and (3) why the observation tower, together with the view of the landscape, forms a single aesthetic situation (the synthesis of the two aspects).
