Living in the city, we are surrounded by human-made structures and objects, leading us to believe that nothing changes from day to day. In reality, the sky above our heads is undergoing dramatic transformations at every moment. By experiencing this along with the endless expanses of space just beyond our atmosphere, we hope users will be reminded of just how miraculous our existence is in the here and now. With this in mind, we redesigned the TENKU planetarium experience. At the entrance lobby, visitors are enveloped in images of the dramatically changing evening sky. After passing through a star-filled tunnel they enter the dome with its crescent moon. This integrated presentation style lets visitors experience the sky's flow of time as we bring each person into the story of space itself.
