The Verzasca dam, Switzerland, is 220 metres high by 380 metres in length. It was built between 1960 and 1965. The reservoir feeds a three-turbine hydroelectric power station, which generates 220 GWh of energy a year. The site became famous as it was used to film the opening jump scene in the James Bond movie “GoldenEye” (1995). From afar it looks like every other mega structure. But from closer and different angles, someone can witness very interesting shapes and patterns.
