Art Print | Shine Dome, Australian Academy of Science
The Shine Dome in its shiny 2021 state is depicted in this art print. This image was created digitally by illustrator Marisa Martin for this open edition.
Roy Grounds was the successful architect responding to the Australian Academy of Science requirements for a purpose built space, completed in 1959. Originally known as Becker House, the Shine Dome is often referred to as the Martian Embassy. Its 710 tonne concrete dome, clad in copper is supported by 16 slender uprights. The uprights are anchored in the surrounding moat providing the impression the dome is floating.
The image measures 13cm wide by 18cm high and is printed on a sheet of A4 high resolution matte photo paper.
You can choose to receive the image framed for an additional cost in a deep frame with a matt board included. Frame measures 21cm x 30cm.
