Tupperware Tower

At the headquarters of the Tupperware Brands Corporation, the company that makes those ubiquitous plastic storage container synonymous with its name, stands a 100-feet (30 m) tall tower made of plastic Tupperware bowls!

With all of the theme parks, resorts, and get-rich-quick schemes in central Florida, it's only natural to expect some unconventional architecture to pop out of the ground. This is, perhaps, the most unexpected piece. Standing at least 100-feet tall overlooking a lagoon along the side of U.S. 441 is a tower made of plastic Tupperware bowls. This tower can serve no other purpose than to draw attention to the ground it stands on -- the corporate headquarters of the Tupperware company. It is outfitted in pastel colors, and lest you think this is a one-time-only publicity stunt, the tower sits on a concrete base and has underground lights that illuminate it like a giant roasting flamingo at night. This is a permanent display. Permanent enough that a pair of falcons have made a nest at the top.
