Work in Progress – Alternate design for 2001 A Space Odyssey wheel station.

Alternate unused 2001 Station design

This is something I am still working on. It’s an alternate design for the famous Wheel Station, much more disk-like.

All the outer sections will be completely replaced, I’m still trying out ideas here. The design is based on “The 2001 File”, the Harry Lange archive.

I don’t intend to get the viewpoint as close as is shown in the near image.

The hub is pretty much the same as the ends of the core as used in the original film. The dark ribs on the inside of the outer sections will have to go too.

  1. EXCELLENT COLOR PRE-PRODUCTION PAINTING OF THIS CONCEPT IN THE BOOK ” THE MAKING OF STANLEY KUBRICK’S 2001: A SPACE ODYSSYEY”. YOUR VERSION IS SPOT ON AS IS THE VIDEO I FOUND ON YOU TUBE. MORE GREAT 2001 STUFF. THANKS.
