It looks like something from outer space but this unusual heritage listed Canberra landmark is the first home of the Australian Academy of Science. Built in 1959, it reflected revolutionary architectural designs of the time and consists of a self-supporting copper-sheathed dome appearing to float above the moat. Inside, the building comprises of meeting rooms, a conference hall and offices and is used by the Academy for many public lectures. For many years, it featured on souvenirs until eclipsed by newer wonders such as the Telstra Tower and New Parliament House.
