Astrology and Architecture – Aries as the Sign of Unicellular Structures: Astrodome & Co
The Astrodome is a multifunctional arena in Houston Texas that opened on April 9 1965. It is 216 m in diameter and its seat capacity ranges from 40.000 to 60.000.
Astrogeographical position: both coordinates are in the one-dimensional male fire sign Aries. Considering the round form and dome it makes me think of it´s character as resembling a unicellular organism. The aspect of Aries as the first astrological principle can be referred to by comparing it with the smallest and most basic element of materia as in the case of the large hadron collider at the CERN institute which is also situated in Aries.
As the fire signs are said to stimulate speed, action, fighting and the muscles in general this constellation may be seen as highly supportive for sports events.
