Ceilings Plus designed, engineered and fabricated the perforated, compound curving spherical enclosure illustrated in these photographs. This $210 million dollar project is our latest achievement translating the architect’s concept into a reality. The acoustical, light reflectance, visual needs were all satisfied with this design. We combined our metal experience with our leading edge computer and machine technology. This project was featured in a 16 page article, Architectural Record September 2000.
