When first laying eyes on the Stratospheric Sculpture, I couldn’t help but be in awe of its gravity-defying design. Yet I quickly I realized there are clever mechanics behind this surreal installation and I instead marvel at its workmanship.

Designed by Fletcher Vaughan, the Stratospheric sculpture is made from opaque, white Corian plates, which are painstakingly layered one at a time. For more images of the building process.
