Sphere Building: ‘un globo, dos globos, tres globos’
One could say that the Sphere Building is rooted on a distinguished tradition that says that the Earth was a tiny sphere suspended stationary at the geometric centre of a much larger rotating one which carried the stars. In other words, the planet Earth was the centre of the universe. It’s a start. The origin of such idea has to be found among Greek astronomers and philosophers. For some of them, the sun moved in the vast space between the earth and the sphere of the stars. Outside of the outer sphere there was nothing at all. No space, no matter, nothing! Frightening and at the same time exciting idea.
