Magical Space 2

Earlier I described experiencing magic while strolling out in Sunnyvale Downtown. I also felt uplifting feelings while walking in 115 feet tall steel structure, enclosed with inflated  (ethylene tetrafluoroethylene)  ETFE cushions, ARTIC, designed by HOK.
The structure covers 200,000 sq. ft area with views of surrounding landscape. The diffused light and the fluid design of the building forces everyone to stop for a moment to look up and around, to experience the space.  I always wanted to walk under Eden Dome (check out my post- Here ) as it has the same type of  roof. Now that I visited this place, I  can imagine the lights under Eden Dome. This is constructed just few months ago and appears technologically more advanced than Eden Project. Check out the photos below.

I was amazed by the building in the day time but the real magic happens when the sun goes down. The installed art, basically LED lighting makes the structure and space vibrant and dynamic. The photos are just little glimpse into magical field.
