The "Dome of Visions" in Copenhagen Promotes Sustainable Housing in More Ways Than One

Danish architects Kristoffer Tejlgaard and Benny Jepsen have created the "Dome of Visions" in Copenhagen, Denmark to publicize ideas of sustainable housing and building. Covered in a thin, transparent, and breathable material, the geodesic dome features panels of CNC-cut polycarbonate and functions as a greenhouse for various bushes, trees, planted vegetables, and herbs. The structure includes an irrigation system and an oven with a horizontal chimney that provides heating for the space. A wooden construction containing a studio, conference room, and terrace is also housed by the dome, which hosts a range of events dedicated to sustainable housing.
