Viewing the dome from its interior looks like a single structure until you look at the wooden models that it is 3 separate structures. The dome is 307.5 feet high; 19 feet taller than the Capitol dome in Washington, D.C.

Interesting cross sections.

How cool is that! I'd love to see it up close, as a designer/builder architectural construction fascinates me.

Fascinating to see how the interior of the dome is actually constructed and pieced together!

The SF city hall dome is quite impressive. I can see it from the roof of my building. It does look like it should be a national capital.

I really adore architectural models - I think I like them better than the real buildings! :)

I have always found domes fascinating. I have been up in the one in the CA state capital, and it is constructed the very same way. - Great shots of the model - and a gorgeous model to boot.

Is that a cutaway dome that we're seeing? How interesting!!
