(Lord Mojo) #1

Hello everyone,:eyeglasses:
I am a new user and a beginner at sketchfab and i am very excited to give my first entry by participating in the Mad Science Contest,2016.
I have been checking this forum and watching the other entries and they are amazing.
Looking the deadline coming nearer, My PANIC Monster has woken up :grin: and...
i decided to break my procrastination and enter in it..
Hoping for the best.:sunglasses:

Here is what i got inspired from...

Cénotaphe à Newton

and the story starts with..

My Research

  • This Building designed by the architect (Étienne-Louis Boullée) as a proposal for a cenotaph for the English scientist Isaac Newton in 1784.

  • The building itself was a 150m (500ft) tall sphere encompassed by two large barriers circled by hundreds of cypress trees.

  • It was planned 60 years after his death, although it was never made.

  • Had it been built, it would surely rank as a manmade wonder of the world.

  • It was FAILED being built at that time because a strong building material like 'concrete' wasn't discovered.

  • The small sarcophagus for Newton is placed at the lower pole of the sphere. The design of the memorial creates the effect of day and night.

  • The effect by night, when the sarcophagus is illuminated by the starlight coming through the holes in the vaulting.

  • The effect by day is an armillary sphere hanging in the center that gives off a mysterious glow.

  • For Boullée symmetry and variety were the golden rules of architecture.
