Dnepr II, is a building influenced by a circus arena situated in the city of Dnipropetrovsk, also called Dnepr, by local inhabitants. Dnepr is located on the Dnieper River in East-Central Ukraine. Dnipropetrovsk has been the major center of the steel industry from the beginning of the 20th century until the present. It has also dominated in the machine-building and aero-spacebuilding industry since the 1950s.

Through researching about the city of Dpner and the circus arena, I felt inspired to create my own interpretation of the building, a spaceship influence, and making it part of new frontier. To learn more about Tomorrowland series read here
