At CERN, the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter — the fundamental particles.
The Globe of Science and Innovation
Designed by Geneva architects T. Büchi and H. Dessimoz, the Globe is as much a homage to the Earth as demonstration of human ingenuity and is undeniably becoming the landmark for CERN. The role of this new spherical building is to serve as a source of pride for the scientific community by sharing the important work done at CERN.
Housing a permanent exhibition and intended as a venue for a wide range of activities, conferences and other one-off events, the Globe of Science and Innovation is well on the way to becoming a major symbol of cutting-edge scientific research in the Geneva region.
SmartGlass International has recently completed an exciting feature within the dome using SPD SmartGlass.
SPD-SmartGlass can be manually or automatically “tuned” to precisely control the amount of light, glare and heat passing through a window.
