The Oscar Niemeyer International Cultural Centre in Aviles, Asturias, Spain was opened in spring 2011.

Astrogeographic position of the construction site for morphogenetic field level 3 which describes the atmosphere and energetical topics of the buildings and how the whole site and surrounding area is embedded in the landscape: one coordinate is located in creative, innovative air sign Aquarius the sign of the sky, heaven, paradise,  going new ways, inspiration and heading for the sky and outer space. In the polarity of the 2 signs Aquarius stands for the tower holding up a round futuristic platform in the shape of an airport tower while standing on a long narrow pole, so that the concentration of the building is on the higher part and not on the lower. Airport towers relate to Aquarius role as the sign of flying. Also interesting for Aquarius is the spiral staircase that proposes taking you up to the high place. Compare the same motif at the 2 spiral wedding chapel.
The 2nd coordinate which lies in highly defensive water sign Scorpio is represented by the closed up helmet like round building with no windows. This fullfills the fortress reflex and helmet intention in Scorpio anf the wish for protecting the head, keeping the light away and creating a space for mental visualization and even the chance for a closed up ideology, dogmy or any simple inmerior space. This intention is so typical for Scorpio and can be observed in a number of buildings of that shape with the astrogeographical position in that sign. A typical example for that is the Beijing Opera House.
 
What brings the two forms together is that both can be associated to mushrooms. Scorpio as the ruler of all types of funghi would be the main indicator for the mushroom association of the ensemble.
On of my favourite examples for that are the white common mushroom roofs of the Taj Mahal.  Compare also: Steiner`s Goetheanum & the Beijing Opera House

Scorpio also stands for the mushroom association of the ensemble.
Valid for morphogenetic field level 3.
