Its a dome for a dance floor. South African version of "burning man" in the Karoo (SA desert), i think its called "africa burns". its a film company that is building it. We helped them last year as well.

I bet it would be sad to see your work go up in smoke .
Like I was sad to see our famous dome 20 story high burn in few minutes. Lukily no one was in at the time of the accident

Message from Sean today:

Hi

my customer and designer of "turbine" and "wish" is looking to rebuild a bigger "turbine' in Reno, San Fransisco. Looking for a CNC Router close to location.
