The Roskilde’s Beautiful Geodesic Dome Looks Like a Tortoise in a Field

geodesic dome, roskilde festival, Kristoffer Tejlgaard, Henrik Almegaard, danish design, hexagon lattice, plywood hexagons, interconnected shapes, reused structure

Within the wooden dome the space seems cavernous and airy, and we don’t doubt that is was a great place to take a time out from the throngs of crowds.

Photos of the dome being built give a good idea of how the intersecting shapes were connected, and the team also have a pretty cool video of the whole construction process here. Hopefully this fantastic project arises again at a future festival and we can follow its path of reuse!
