A temporary building
A sensuous space-in-between
A GREEN BUBBLE
Dome of Visions is a dome-shaped greenhouse the height of a three-storey house. The dome puts focus on sustainable construction, urban life, architecture and new ways of working together. Inside is a two-storey house, shielded from wind and rain, surrounded by fragrant trees and plants.
The Dome is a temporary space-in-between. It positions itself as a suggestion on how to create vibrant life in urban environments and their cracks. Be it the cultural center, the construction site, a time between night and day, a place between the conscious and the subconscious, a state of mind between dream and reality, a state of matter between gas, liquid, plasma and solid, or the spaces between the you and the me, in the city.
Dome of Visions is about action over talk, and is aimed at reaping new knowledge and experience in alternative designs, materials and ways of working together. At the same time, the Dome will show the way to new visions, by being the setting for conferences and debates about the sustainable cities and buildings of the future.
Dome of Visions is a place that seeks to inspire and collect visions and ideas for the future. It will try to see the positive angles after the impact of the financial crisis, rather than follow a dystopian mindset. It will try to inspire bold new takes on the possibilities, in an effort to try and bend the hardship into elusive opportunities. It lets people dare to imagine a brighter future.
Dome of Visions offers itself to everyone ranging from underground movements to international networks. Occupying an empty space in the city, this temporary building allows the creation of a creative gap in the heart of the city, where artists, entrepreneurs, local enthusiasts, and international networks can meet and share their passions. New worlds can be sought and found; great visions can be unfolded and manifested.
