Dome of Visions
Day 5 - Dome of Visions, the building that caught my attention the most throughout my whole trip. It is located right opposite of the Black Diamond, and offering the ideas of the possibilities in vitalising the space between buildings and temporary sites that always spring up when new buildings are constructed. Its construction is based on the ideas conceived by Buckminster Fuller, who is an American architect and futurist, in 1940s. The construction of the dome aims to challenge construction industry on balancing both daily life and ambitious climate goals when developing cities. Flexible plastic made up the surface of the dome that gives visitors a feel to stay in a greenhouse during the change of seasons, and thus giving a clear overall picture of the dome's ability to function as a residential and living room in harmony with the seasons and the power of sun.
