The Spire of Dublin, alternatively titled the Monument of Light (Irish: An Túr Solais), is a large, stainless steel, pin-like monument 120m in height, located on O'Connell Street in Dublin, Ireland.
The spire was designed by Ian Ritchie Architects, who sought an "Elegant and dynamic simplicity bridging art and technology". The first section was installed on 18 December 2002. Construction of the sculpture was delayed because of difficulty in obtaining planning permission and environmental regulations. The Spire consists of eight hollow stainless steel cone sections, the longest being 20m, which were installed on 21 January 2003.

Shoutout to Dublin's seagulls for respecting my personal space.
Thanks to TwinkieSWF for art suggestions.
