Atomium

Day one, to Brussels, Belgium.

First stop, Atomium stucture monument

The Atomium is a monument in Brussels, originally built for Expo ’58, the 1958 BrusselsWorld’s Fair. Designed by André Waterkeyn and Les Architectes Polak, it stands 102 metres tall. It has nine steel spheres connected so that the whole forms the shape of a unit cellof an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times.

Tubes connect the spheres along the 12 edges of the cube and all eight vertices to the centre. They enclose escalators connecting the spheres containing exhibit halls and other public spaces. The top sphere provides a panoramic view of Brussels. Each sphere is 18 metres in diameter.
