Station Brussel-Noord / Gare de Bruxelles-Nord (Station Brussel-Noord)
The Atomium is a building in Brussels originally constructed for Expo '58, the 1958 Brussels World's Fair. Designed by the engineer André Waterkeyn and architects André and Jean Polak, it stands 102 m (335 ft) tall. Its nine 18 m (59 ft) diameter stainless steel clad spheres are connected so that the whole forms the shape of a unit cell of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times.
Despite the different materials, the house looks uniform because the two wings are structurally identical. In between the two wings an enclosed breezeway houses the kitchen, dining and living in one open space. “It is flanked by two wings with traditional pitched roofs,” says Hodgskin. “They talk to each other in form and the bit in between is really the minimum we could do to link them.”
