People Meeting Dome Designed by Danish Architects
This impressive People Meeting Dome is designed by Danish architects Kristoffer Tejlgaard and Benny Jepsen. It is a meeting place in Bornholm, Denmark. This structure is a true architectural achievement. The geodesic dome is one of the most optimal methods of constructing that we know of. It has all the advantages of being rationally and mathematically generated, but it is sadly lacking many of the qualities we associate with good architecture. You could call it non-architecture.
It sets like a spaceship that only relates to its own design, not the local surroundings. The ambition was therefore to understand the geodesic domes construction, and then deconstruct its sacred geometry, in a way where we do not oppose, but respect its properties.
The deconstruction enables the dome to become an unlocked shape, but can be splitup and scaled, so that the cut dome may be shaped by it´s site and features. It can form niches, crevices and corners, defining, opening and hiding.
