Through The Lens 70 – Vehicle Assembly Building

As a follow up to my previous post about the Space Shuttle Atlantis Exhibit, I thought I’d share another from that trip. The main reason for that particular visit to the Cape was to tour the Vehicle Assembly Building. While the building isn’t fancy architecture, as an architect I still appreciate the technical challenges of creating the largest single story building in the world. Topping out at 525ft 10in, the VAB encloses 129,428,000 cubic feet of space.

Photographing the VAB was a challenge because of the size of the building. To best show it’s vastness, I chose a wide angle lens and placed my camera on a table top tripod on the floor.
