Disney World’s Spaceship Earth in EPCOT
One of the most recognizable structures in the world, Spaceship Earth is basically a math equation. As the epicenter of Disney World’s second theme park, EPCOT, the structure is a derivative of a pentakis dodecahedron with over 11,000 isosceles triangles. We fabricated the triangles in our Nashville, TN shop with Alucobond composite material and shipped them to a shop in Tampa, FL to be assembled on steel frames for their on-site installation.
Spaceship Earth was our first major job after being chosen by the material manufacturer as a certified fabricator and installer of what was then a brand new product called aluminum composite material and panels.
