Dome Of Visions

Dome Of Visions

Denmark
Bayer MS

The dome is a mobile greenhouse with an innovative façade made out of polycarbonate. One of the aim of the dome is to challenge the current construction industry’s material usage in order to look for and provide more sustainable solutions for the future. At the same time it addresses the optimization of the usage of energy and promotes minimal use of materials.
It is incredibly weatherproof, yet has an effective ventilation system, and has better insulation properties than glass. The structure is 10,5 meters in height and has a diameter of 21 meters and serves as a green- house for number of plants and vegetables featuring as well an irrigation system. Additionally, the poly- carbonate panels are 100% recyclable when dismantled. It takes 14 days to set up the dome and the same duration to disassembly it.
This greenhouse studio serves as a scientific experiment and a cultural center and will be installed in sev- eral cities in Denmark during its 2 years tour starting as of 2013. Throughout its tour of Denmark, its de- signers will test its energy usage and microclimate in order to gauge how well this design could stack up for future homes.
