Shrine to the Earth for the Exposition Universelle in Paris, 1900

This enormous, scientifically accurate globe would have stood 418 feet tall. A spiraling ramp would have led viewers along a journey from Antarctica to the North Pole. Proposed in 1895, it was never built. Patrick Geddes called it “no mere scientific model in its institute, but the image, the shrine, and temple of the Earth-mother.”
