The "geodesic sphere" is located in Saale Park in the Günthersdorf district of Leipzig. The objet d'art is 36m high and weighs a total of 51 tonnes. The shell of the sphere comprises 576 separate elements, each of which is individually illuminated from the inside by a colour mixing lamp. This design makes it possible to create any kind of light show by generating up to 12 million colour gradations across the object. Polenz Metall Design Manufaktur was responsible for the design and construction of the project.
