Signifying Technion + NANO: Calatrava Kinetic Sculpture

World-renowned architect Dr. Santiago Calatrava has designed a giant obelisk that marks the heart of the Technion campus. The 28-meter high kinetic sculpture is composed of 224 steel ribs on eight levels. The monument moves in a wave-like motion, in which each moving rib induces the sequential motion of the next one level at a time from top to bottom. “I designed this vertical kinetic sculpture, which integrates beauty with technique and mechanics, such that it can be seen from every place.”
