Inside the Dali Dome

Posted by
Viewfinder (Bradenton, FL, United States) on 1 August 2011 in Architecture and Portfolio.

In addition to last week's snails and black Rolls Royce, the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg incorporates all kinds of cool stuff, including their architecture, to reflect Salvador Dali's eclectic interests. One of those interests is geometry, and so there is this geodesic dome design built in. This is a shot from inside, in the lobby...

This sure is an inspirational location . . Dali's work is so difficult to 'contain' anywhere - even in the places he left it !

Beautiful lines and angles in this shot Glenn! I think I agree with Ronnie that Dali is too big to capture in any one place! Well done! ;-)

Interesting teaser. I hope there is more, it looks to be very abstract.
