Crane of Kockum

Crane of Kockum


Malmö, Sweden (SE)
The crane of Kockum is with its 140 m the highest building in Malmö. For 25 years it has been seen from half of Skåne. For twelve years it was on duty by Kockum lifting parts of ships, and now it´s more like a homage to all the thousands of people who daily cycled to the ship-yard. Today it´s there year by year, of no use, rusty and hardly of any function - a dying crane.

So one could say the Crane of Kockum has been left out, dangling in the wind?
