While the material choice and methods of joinery become one means of artistic expression, the primary concept is conveyed through the extrapolated base design.
Here, Calatrava's Hemispheric Imax Theater is mirrored in the plexiglass, similar to the reflecting pool that surrounds it in Valencia. The model takes this notion one step further by literally completing the sphere in the base to form a complete pupil.
