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 [6]

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 processĀ here [7]. Hopefully this fantastic project arises again at a future festival and we can follow its path of reuse!
