Globus Cassus is an art project and book by Swiss architect and artist Christian Waldvogel presenting a conceptual transformation of planet Earth into a much bigger, hollow, artificial world with an ecosphere on its inner surface. It was the Swiss contribution to the 2004 Venice Architecture Biennale and was awarded the Gold Medal in the category "Most beautiful books of the World" at the Leipzig Book Fair in 2005. It consists of a meticulous description of the transformation process, a narrative of its construction, and suggestions on the organizational workings on Globus Cassus.

  • Globus Cassus é um projeto artístico descrito no livro de mesmo nome pelo arquiteto suiço Christian Waldvogel, que apresenta uma teórica transformação do planeta Terra em um mundo artificial oco e mais volumoso, com uma ecosfera em sua superfície interior.
  • Globus Cassus es un proyecto de utopía para la transformación del planeta Tierra en un mundo artificial mucho más voluminoso y hueco con una ecósfera sobre su superficie interna. La luz del día entraría a través de dos ventanas gigantescas, la gravedad sería asegurada por la fuerza centrífuga. La población humana viviría en dos vastas regiones una frente a la otra y que estarían conectadas por el centro vacío.Siendo el antípoda de la Tierra en muchos aspectos, Globus Cassus actúa como un modelo filosófico para la descripción opuesta de la Tierra y como una herramienta para entender el proceso de funcionamiento del mundo real.
  • Globus Cassus (lat. globus „Erdkugel“ und cassus „hohl“) ist eine architektonische Utopie, welche die Umwandlung der Erde in eine viel größere, hohle und auf ihrer Innenseite bewohnte Sphäre von diskusartiger Form vorsieht. Die von außen nach innen „umgestülpte Erde“ ist gemäß Waldvogel ein „antipodisches“ Modell, das als „Spielplatz dienen soll, um neue, frische und ungebundene Ideen für eine ideale Welt zu entwickeln“. (“It is meant to be a playground to develop new, fresh and unrestricted ideas for an ideal world.”) Als Kunstprojekt gehört es in den Bereich der Netz- und Prozesskunst.

  • Globus Cassus est un projet utopique pour la transformation de la planète Terre en un monde artificiel beaucoup plus volumineux et creux avec une écosphère sur sa surface interne. La lumière du jour entrerait à travers deux gigantesques fenêtres et une gravité artificielle serait créée par effet centrifuge. La population humaine vivrait sur deux vastes régions qui se feraient face et qui seraient reliées par le centre vide.
  • Il Globus Cassus è un progetto architettonico a carattere utopico che prevede la trasformazione della Terra in un pianeta artificiale cavo, di dimensioni assai superiori rispetto a quelle attuali, dotato di un'ecosfera situata sulla propria superficie interna. La luce solare entrerebbe attraverso due grandi finestre, la gravità sarebbe simulata grazie alla forza centrifuga derivante dalla rotazione del corpo. Gli esseri umani potrebbero popolare due vaste regioni, l'una prospiciente all'altra, connesse fra loro attraverso il nucleo cavo.
