Dome with Sculpture “Undulating Spire”
Updated December 23, 2009
The dome structure and spire represent a creative collaboration between the building’s architect John Spohrer and sculptor Lyle London. The four geometric arrays on the dome are composed of 12 aluminum bands. These bands create the transparent surface of the dome, which is crowned by the 17-foot tall stainless steel sculpture “Undulating Spire.” The 45-foot diameter dome weighs approximately 13,000 pounds. Computer-controlled LED lights create the illusion of the dome hovering over the building at night.
