Dome of Visions is inspired by the ideas conceived in the 1940s by the American futurist and architect Buckminster Fuller. He is the father of geodestic domes. In the 1960s he described a 3 km geodesic dome spanning Midtown Manhattan that would regulate weather and reduce air pollution.
The dome principle builds on studies of, among other things, minimalist structures whose surface tension creates the basis for the supporting framework and facade.

The Dome of Visions architect is Kristoffer Tejlgaard (M. Arch). Kristoffer has been architect and builder of geodetic buildings for several years. His aim is to make architecture a freer art form. Profit and regulation need not overshadow a more harmonic relationship between people and nature. His work is aimed at making us realize that different systems inherently affect one another. We can share that knowledge – and, together, we can achieve more with less.
Dome 1.0 was constructed by NCC in close cooperation with architects Kristoffer Tejlgaard and Benny Jepsen. It is 10,5 meters in height and has a diameter of 21 meters.
Dome 2.0 changing the geometry
Dome 2.0 is constructed with a different core geometry than Dome 1.0. The height is 0,8 m lower and the width is 0,2 wider. But the main difference is leaving the geodesic geometry in favour of a square grid.

The static skeleton and the facade follows the same geometry, in order to harvest as many advantages as possible. The joining of the facade takes place on bolts pre-installed in the skeleton to make erection faster. The overlap is concealed behind the structure, when looking from inside, increasing transparency.
