Dome Of Visions

Denmark
BAYER MATERIAL SCIENCE

The Dome of Visions project is putting words into action - namely following new ideas in construction and urban thinking and planning at the same time promoting sustainable housing. The dome’s goal is to inspire and to challenge the construction industry’s existing material usage and methods as well to find solutions for the climate change.
The shape of the dome is inspired by an American futurist and architect Buckminster Fuller who, among other things, studied minimalistic constructions and patented the geodesic dome. The dome is covered with polycarbonate combined with a wooden structure. It is incredibly waterproof, 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 greenhouse for number of plants and vegetables.
The dome is both an inspiring entertainment venue that generates visibility, as well as a serious scien- tific experiment. This greenhouse studio and temporary cultural center will be installed in several cities in Denmark during its 2 years tour starting as of 2013.
