ASM Headquarters & Geodesic Dome
Materials Park, Ohio
The mineral garden centered under the Geodesic Dome is 100 ft in diameter. It contains 66 specimens of raw mineral ores from around the world & over 75 perennials, shrubs & flowering trees. A beautiful fountain at the center of the garden & sitting area make for the perfect place to rest & take in "Architectural Heaven" as I like to call it. While standing/sitting in the garden, something new will command your attention in any direction you look....Water features, reflective floor to ceiling windows, hexagons, metal, pillars, brick...the list can go on & on! Personally, one of the things I love most about this property is the flow. If this building & dome were to be located in a city, or even a less remote setting, it would'nt be the same. Here you have a massive super modern structure...metal, concrete, glass...yet it's surrounded by green rolling hills, trees, flowers, the dome tieing in the blue sky....it all just flows as if it was meant to be together. Two completely different ends of the spectrum meeting at a common place making for one of the most beautiful properties I've ever seen....phenomenal!
