 at site today (11 Feb 2017)
Work commenced today morning with beaking of coconut shells and a Bhumi Puja at Eco Park site. The site is close to Herbal Garden, across the water body. The hemi-spheric dome will have a ground level diameter of 45 m, mostly crystalline solar panels and glass panels connected to the power lines through a net metering mechanism so that it will be an net energy positive enclosure. It will be 27 m tall and will have three levels of exhibition space connected through a spiral ramp along the dome and a central lift. The top level will offer a spectacular viewing gallery. The first level will showcase few exhibits on green city while other levels will concentrate on art and culture. Here are few artist's impressions:




It is expected that the project will be completed by next year.
