Gremi Park in Poland that looks like human base on Mars

Gremi Park in southern Poland, located between Krakow and Katowice, is a development venue for AR and VR technologies (augmented reality and virtual reality). The futuristic complex which was originally built as a headquarters for Radio Mazyka Fakty station and later became a film studio looks a lot like human base on Mars with connected domes. Especially during the construction phase and colored appropriately :)
