Denmark’s Uniquely Shaped Geodesic Dome

Denmark-Uniquely-Shaped-Geodesic-Dome

This incredibly complex geometric structure by Copenhagen-based architects Kristoffer Tejlgaard and Benny Jepsen exemplifies the cooperative culmination of creative architecture, efficient design, and mathematic construction. The Danish architects built the geodesic dome for the Peoples Meeting being held in Bornholm, Denmark. The event gathers the greatest minds to discuss and debate the future of housing and according to the duo’s client, BL, Denmark Public Housing, “a standard exhibition tent would not do justice to a debate of such importance.”

The architectural project, known simply as the Peoples Meeting Dome, provides a site-specific space that breaks down the traditional dome. Instead of walking into the mundane top-half of a giant ball, Tejlgaard and Jepsen have produced an aesthetically intriguing edifice with layers, niches, crevices, and corners. The dome boasts an intimate ambience with its central stage area and circumferential seating design surrounded by a pattern of triangular wooden modules and large windows.
