L'Hemisfèric

I spy with my little eye a gigantic blinking eye… if you think the visually stunning L'Hemisfèric looks like a massive eye, you are right; it’s supposed to look like one. This architectural masterpiece may look familiar from TV car ads but nothing can prepare you for being in front of this star pupil and then stepping inside. Come along and have your breath taken away by one of the most dramatic buildings of the last few years. L'Hemisfèric’s function is as a projection hall with three separate systems projecting onto a curved 900sq.m screen above more than 300 patrons. There’s an Imax dome, a 3D digital screen and digital full dome projections, often of an astronomical nature. Lie back and be transported to another dimension. All these dramatic features have earned nicknames such as the Eye of Knowledge and the Planetarium. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and in the case of L'Hemisfèric, it truly is a sight to behold. The Imax dome serves as the ‘pupil’ of the eye and the ‘eyelid’ opens and closes by means of hydraulic lifts, which operate the steel and glass shutter. The building itself is surrounded by a massive pond, the bottom of which is glass, creating the illusion of the eye as a whole. The interior boasts a delightful little effect that allows you and a friend to stand at two opposite pillars inside the eye that allow you to talk with each other as if you were side by side.
