Designed by the engineer Andr̩ Waterkeyn for the 1958 International Exhibition of Brussels. "The Atomium is a structure that is half way between sculpture and architecture, symbolising a crystallised molecule of iron by the scale of its atoms, magnified 150 thousand million times. The nine large spheres joined by tubes which comprise the Atomium, are arranged in the configuration of a central cubic system. These spheres, with a diameter of 18 metres, were fitted out by the architects Andr̩ and Jean Polak." - http://www.atomium.be/ Keywords: Belgium, Bruxelles, architecture parlante, atom, exhibitions, exhibition and exhibition spaces.
