The shell of the "Tholos" is constructed by armed cement, which is sheathed by stainless grid. The sphere is surrounded by metallic "rings" that contribute to the image of a celestial body, but are also useful in the lighting of the shell. The semi-circular screen (Dome Screen), where digital projections take place, is constructed by perforated aluminum leaves on a metallic frame and is based on a perimetric wall.
