La Géode in Paris

geode de paris

I took this photo at the biginning of December during my short visit to Paris.

This incredible construction is placed  in the “Parc de la Villette” at the Cité des Sciences et de lIndustrie (City of Science and Industry) in the 19th arrondissement of Paris, France.

La Géode (geodisic dome) is 36 metres (118 ft) in diameter and it is composed of 6,433 polished stainless steel triangles that form the sphere that reflects the sky.

La Géode is movies there where movies are projected in IMAX format on a giant hemispherical screen that covers 1,000 square metres (11,000 sq ft).

I was there in morning and almost nobody was around, an amazing impression as in a science fiction movie!
