  • Ann and Robert H. Lurie Tower and Carillon

Inspired by the Burton Memorial Tower on Central Campus ( WA7.2), Lurie tower gives focus to North Campus and serves as a companion piece to the Robert H. Lurie Engineering Center. The tower soars 165 feet above the campus and holds a sixty-bell carillon and an observation deck. The bells were designed and cast by the Royal Eijsbouts bell foundry in the Netherlands.
