Shine Dome was a radically unique design at the time it was built, so there were many unknowns when construction started. Some engineers and architects doubted it could be successfully built because they didn’t know how they’d be able to calculate the stresses a 710 tonne concrete dome perched on top of 16 slender supports would create. Fortunately, they were able to test this in the end by creating a 1/40 scale model.
