Challenging new visions on the future development of urban spaces, the Dome of Visions in the Copenhagen harbor establishes visual and conceptual connections between the present and the future. This 346.4 sqm transparent construction designed by Kristoffer Tejlgaard and Benny Jepsen is a versatile structure, attracting locals, tourists, design and architecture lovers, as well as professionals in the field. Looking to become a creative platform and housing modern dance performances, classical music and even an audio-accompanied and live transmitted space travel.
This temporary space in the city’s Krøyers square host debates on sustainable home life, introducing the Danish building sector to greenhouse dwelling benefits. Made from CNC-cut polycarbonat sheets, overlapping to make it wind and rain proof, the dome houses a 100 year old olive tree alongside eucalyptus trees, flowers , peach and apple trees and herbs. Inside this dome, a two-story home rises to shelter a conference room and a terrace on ground level and a studio upstairs. With the intention of expanding the garden to shelter raised beds for herbs and vegetables complete with an irrigation system, the project continues its journey through Denmark starting the end of May, with Aarhus as its next destination.
