From the Architects:

The competition design of the observatory on the top of Kelcsky Javornik takes advantage of its unique location. The landscape difference between the highland of Wallachia on one side and the flat land of Haná region on the other side was taken as the main principle of the design. For all the way up to the top of the observatory, the view is stricly directed to one side only, thus the visitor has chance to view Haná characteristic landscape on north or Wallachia on south. On the top deck of the tower the division disappears and the view unites into 360 degrees unobstructed view to the surroundings.  The form of the tower follows this principle.
