Shine Dome lights up tonight
The Australian Academy of Science's heritage-listed Shine Dome will light up from tonight; joining other landmark Canberra buildings shining out in a display of colour.
"We are delighted that after the hard work of the Academy's House Committee and with funding from the Australian Government National Historic Sites Program, this important Australian science icon is being lit up for all to enjoy," said President of the Academy, Professor Suzanne Cory.
The lights will be officially turned on at 7.30pm tonight by Federal Member for Canberra, Ms Gai Brodtmann MP.
"Since it was first unveiled as the Academy's headquarters in 1959, the Shine Dome has been known for its unique design, its beauty and its visionary architecture," Professor Cory said.
"Now our beloved heritage-listed building is even further enhanced with the addition of colourful night lights."
The biggest freestanding dome structure in Australia, the copper Shine Dome is an architectural landmark. It has won multiple awards for its bold design and construction, by notable Australian architect Sir Roy Grounds.
