L’Hemisferic in Valencia is modelled after the shape of a human eye. Interestingly, the building itself only exhibits half of the eye, and the image is completed by its reflection in the surrounding water feature. The theme of the eye is important to the building’s function as an IMAX theatre, Planetarium and Laserium, each of which hosts impressive feats of visual art.
