This awesome dome is not far from where I grew up in a rural suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. It is the world headquarters for the American Society of Materials (formerly Metals). We used to pass by it all the time when I was a kid, and I always thought it looked like pure science fiction. It is located in the middle-of-nowhere, almost out of sight from a fast country road next to a huge forested park. I had nearly forgotten about it since moving away 20-plus years ago. A few weeks back one of my customers was contracted to update some of the signage at this facility and had me do the artwork. Reminded about how cool this place is I took a day off & drove out there. They don't get many visitors, but keep the grounds well maintained anyway because the visitors they do get always bring cameras. It is a regular destination of architecture students, and it is easy to see why. This place was built in the 1950's, but because of how modern it seems you'd swear it was designed in the last decade with retro-styling in mind. Nope- this is the real deal, like some crazy atomic base from an old pulp comic book. I plan on going back soon to get some evening shots for more dramatic lighting, but the high-key architecture look works well here too. All shots E-M5 with the Olympus 12mm. A side note- for those of you who are fans of The Venture Brothers, don't you think this place would make the best Venture Industries HQ if they ever made a live action movie?
