About Project AQ-Y

Project AQ-Y is an unique, sophisticated ride designed to lift 42 passengers high above a heritage site or city and give them new ways to understand and interpret it.

Designed by award-winning architect Nicholas Stubbs, Project AQ-Y comprises a revolving glass observation pod which is suspended between two slim, carbon fibre masts. This rises from a horizontal position to around 65 metres, offering 360º views over a location. The high-tech, low-profile design has been created specifically for heritage sites and AQ-Y is uniquely positionable, giving unique multi-point views of its host location.

The project is now at an advanced stage and involves a wide range of leading research and engineering partners.
