Perlan Centre, Iceland

Perlan was designed by architect Ingimundur Sveinsson and opened to the public on 21 June 1991.

The building is composed of an immense glass dome that sits on six hot-water tanks, each carrying four million litres of geothermal hot water. All of this is supported by a colossal steel frame, which serves important functions in addition to holding everything together. 

The centre is bursting with a vast range of educational experiences; from a cinematic underwater journey around Iceland, the chance to witness a real ice cave, a cutting-edge planetarium, becoming awe-struck at the glaciers exhibit and so much more.
