The skyscraper entrance flaunted polished marble floors, which shone in gentle arcs below a sparkling waterfall on the left wall. An image of the Earth rotated slowly before the glistening black tiles of the right wall. Front and center stood a massive hardwood reception desk.

Light flooded in from a single oval skylight fifty meters across, offering an optically perfect sliver of the blue sky.
