Interior of the protected shopping gallery from 1958: Ravenstein Gallery, Brussels, Belgium

the construction took place between 1954 and 1958, according to the plans of the architects Alexis and Philippe Dumont, the Ravensteinstreet gives entrance to a kicking complex, an immense hall under a cupola which bridges the unevenness of 10 meters between the two streets. The gallery continues the tradition of large covered passages which were this way typical for the 19de centuries. Here it is done with a concrete and glass dome.

Observatory, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, 1962

McMath-Pierce Solar Telescope

Tucson, Arizona

The McMath-Pierce Solar Telescope is the world’s largest instrument dedicated to viewing the Sun. The telescope is a 110-foot tall, 26-foot-diameter platform that supports a mirror reflecting light down a 200-feet-foot long concrete optical tunnel that serves as the back leg of the telescope’s upside down V. Along with advancing the understanding of the Sun, the much-photographed McMath Telescope has become an exemplar of outdoor monumental sculpture.

Project Facts

Completion Year: 1962
Site Area: 200 acres
Building Height: 110 ft
