Gallery: The Roskilde’s Beautiful Geodesic Dome Looks Like a Tortoise i...

Constructed for the uber-cool Danish festival Roskilde last year, this brilliant geodesic dome is a fantastic mobile design that could be dismantled and relocated elsewhere. The brains behind the project are Danish architect Kristoffer Tejlgaard and engineer Henrik Almegaard, who designed the latticed structure as a deconstructable network, perfect for a temporary festival. Assembled from 240 plywood hexagons, light seeps into the structure through hexagonal windows that form a pattern across the pavilion like a tortoise's shell.

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!
