The first 3D Imax building in Bucharest is the eye catcher of Romanias largest shopping mall. Bucharest, as the financial and economical heart of Romania, is in a remarkable catch up race, even more since they joined the E.U. in 2007. The city's strong economic growth has revitalized infrastructure and led to the development of many shopping malls, modern residential towers and high-rise office buildings.

The building shows similarities with the famous Glasgow Science centre, but differs in its outer form. The perfect round sphere is created by the use of 24 twisted wrinkles, running from the top to the bottom. The wrinkle shape, designed by Octatube, is the result of advanced 3D modelling and enables the sphere to be covered with twisted zinc panels.
