The new planetarium and visitor centre at ESO Headquarters

A first artist’s impression from 2013 of the stunning planetarium and visitor centre to be built at ESO Headquarters near Munich, Germany. The new building, conceived by Darmstadt-based architects Bernhardt + Partner, and with construction to be funded by the Klaus Tschira Stiftung, is designed to complement the existing ESO site. When viewed from above the building symbolises a binary star system about to go supernova.
