Glass Dome – The National Parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany

Share/Bookmark

The current Reichstag dome is a glass dome with a 360 degree view of the surrounding Berlin cityscape, constructed on top of the rebuilt Reichstag building in Berlin. It was designed by architect Norman Foster and built to symbolize the reunification of Germany. The Reichstag dome, the roof terrace and the German parliament attract visitors from all over the world. The debating chamber of the Bundestag, the German parliament, can be seen down below. A mirrored cone in the center of the dome directs sunlight into the building. The dome is open to the public and can be reached by climbing two steel, spiraling ramps that are reminiscent of a double-helix.

Glass Bottom Skywalk in Grand Canyon, Arizona

Share/Bookmark

The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a glass transparent horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge and tourist attraction in Arizona near the Colorado River, located on the edge of a side canyon in the Grand Canyon West area of the main canyon. Visitors on the Skywalk, which has a clear, 4-inch-thick glass bottom, peer over the railing, or down through their stance to see the Canyon and all of its 4,000 feet of vertical abyss. Although its weight capacity is stated to be 70 tons, permitted capacity is limited to just 120 people at a time. Visitors must wear special “booties” over their shoes so as not to damage or scuff the glass bottom.
