Outer space: the final frontier.
The dome at the existing planetarium assumes the role of a heavenly body that causes the surrounding space-time fabric, the new planetarium in this case, to distort. Through the warping curtain wall as a response to the existing planetarium dome, a conceptual dialogue between the existing and the new planetariums is thus established.
The geometry of Beijing Planetarium expresses a systhesis of two cosmic realms by juxtaposing space warp and quantum particles with strings weaving in between.
Clockwork that symbolizes the predictability and three-dimensionality of Newtonian cosmology.
The deformed spheres, which contain digital planetarium, 4-D theater and I-Werk theater, signify fundamental particles in Quantum Mechanics.
Using curvy tubular strings, as here rendered by artist, to create functional spatial elements that contain digital planetarium, 4-D theater and I-Werk theater.
Boullee’s Cenotaph for Isaac Newton (1784) is an architectural embodiment of Newtonian cosmology written with primary forms of Euclidean geometry.
