OriginEdit

A neoclassical architect with a love for using unornamented geometric designs to display his views on simplicity and grandeur. Étienne-Louis Boullée was particularly attached to the perfectness of the sphere, which he heavily utilized in his most famous plan.

Intending to build a cenotaph worthy of Isaac Newton, he envisioned a 150 m (500 ft) tall globe, taller than the Great Pyramids of Giza. Cypress trees would surround the orb as a symbol of mourning, while multiple ramps would gently curve into the entrances. Finally, Newton’s sarcophagus would be placed in the center of a stark empty chamber, where lights would illuminate the blackness, as did Newton’s work to the scientific world. Although it was never constructed, the concept gained wide praise for its uniqueness and symbolism.

EffectsEdit

Designs buildings that best represent the occupant’s temperament and preferences. Values they hold dear, personality traits and lifestyle choices will all be considered to fabricate the most representative structure. It also has the slight and unfortunate effect of rounding off the edges of whatever the occupant touches, smoothing angular and pointed objects into approximately sized, unusable spheres.
