This was originally design as a massive space warp machine for large ships and such. The structure is colossal in size and so heavy that it needs  massive support structure. Since it is massive and it's a space warp machine, it will need tremendous amount of energy to run. Also it needs to sits really high so ship can warp in/out without hitting anything. So the IMC carve out mountains, built the machine on top of it, and channel straight down to the planets' core to get energy to run this baby. (at lease that's the story I made up when designing this structure.)
Then the story change and this giant machine turn into Fold Weapon (planetary annihilation weapon).

Simply breathtaking - an outstanding piece of art! Great lighting and scene setup. One can feel the height. The alien vegetation is a great contribution to the scene.

This picture is outstanding. I found this picture during a web search. And since then it is my wallpaper on the computer. But only now I found it here on deviantart and now I know who made this great picture. :D

This is a great work of art. The idea behind this first appeared years ago in Larry Niven's novel, A World Out of Time. Great forgotten book. Give it a read sometime. -Z

why not build it in orbit of a star or gas giant and harness the energy of its parent body therefor negating the need to worry about the interference of a thick atmo0sphere or strong gravity well?

good one =D
the machine was built on the planet for easier access for the work area

Ok but that still seems like it would take more resources and energy than was worth it

Thanks for sparking my imagination!

great idea, but as the story continued - the designers couldn't deliver so much energy to keep this thing running and later it got abandoned, because
in the distant future the interest for warfare has diminished and the birds and plants took over the place for good :)
