The project metaphorically floats on a topography of the skies
above the visitor and heightens the experience of learning about
space and its elements while moving through the facility.
The undulating roof recalls the infinite landscape
of space. Its angular shape gives the sense of an ever altering
form depending on ones position in relation to it. It is
both enveloping and impenetrable. This roof form allows the visitor
to never be disconnected from the surrounding landscape, only
touching the ground where needed in particular spaces, or floating
above the ground to give remarkable views in others.
Christopher Simmonds Architect 2015.
