The Atomium Building - Laura Villa and Mateo Cifuentes - 3rd C

The Atomium Building

   -Main features: This building is made of stainless steel, it consists of 9 spheres: 8 in the vertices, all connected by tubes to the central sphere.
     There are escalators and a lift to allow access to the five habitable spheres which contain exhibit halls and other public spaces

    -Main Builder (A.Waterkeyn): André Waterkeyn was born on August 1917 in Wimbledon and nacionalized Belgian and died on October 2005. He was an ingeneer best known for creating the Atomium. He was the economic director of Fabrimetal (now Agoria), when he was asked to design the Atomium in 1954

    -Opinion: In our opinion, this building does quite well a decorative purpose it can have, but it's a definatelly good building to acomplish its real purpose: Representing Belgium's scientific talent, as its atom-like shape really fits in.
