Panorama View

To enter the Concentrator today is an awe-inspiring and unique experience. The building towers nine floors straight up, full of silenced machinery and rusted metal with only a soaring staircase connecting the narrow floors. Click on the images below to experience the interior and exterior of the concentrator in a 360 degree panorama.

These panorama images use Apple's QuickTime VR technology, and requires the latest version of the QTVR plug-in to be installed on your machine. In a few seconds you should see the panorama, but should the panorama not display properly, you may not have the latest version of the QTVR plug-in.
