The Tower of the Shadows was planned to go between the Palace of Justice and the Parliament building, in the Capitol area. It is a lofty, open-sided hall providing ample shade. In the subdued atmosphere thus created, one can be free to meditate. The building is aligned precisely on the north-south axis, so that it agreeably interrupts the severe symmetry of the enormous square. The north side is entirely open, and the other three faces are furnished with brise-soleil. A ramp leads from this square into the sunken park (the Trench of Consideration).
