Millennium Science Complex Construction 007

The cantilevered portion of the Millennium Science Complex is one of the most obvious design elements of the structure, making up its iconic plaza overhang. The architecture receives its strength by continuing the angled steel design into the ground, as seen here in the basement of the building. Angled beams such as these, which extend to more than 80 feet each, connect the two wings of the building and support the connecting overhang area.
