Globo

Madrid

This design made use of a pre-taut canvas to create a globe 25 metres in diameter and its support consisting of a 10-metre high pillar located in the centre of the sphere. The globe is kept inflated by means of the pressurised textile. An electric motor runs a fan that compensates for losses and maintains constant pressure on the interior.
