The structure, which was chosen to depict the enthusiasm of the Atomic Age, features nine connected stainless steel-clad spheres, six of which are accessible by the public. An engineering feat, the building contains the fastest elevator of all time (5m/s) and was originally designed to last only six months. It now serves as a museum.
