Built for the World’s Fair in 1959, the Atomium in Brussels is the 50s version of ‘space age’.
Staircase with an ‘atom’ theme.
Trippy ride up the escalator with multicoloured flashing lights.
Looking out at the giant ‘molecule’.
Looking down to the surrounding park. Made up of patterned metal plates, the round ‘atoms’ appear to be etched with angular lines.
Another view of the staircase going down one of the molecular ‘bonds’.
This is part of our 2012 trip to Belgium, mostly following the ‘beer route’.
