This reconfigurable pneumatic structure can transform from a 700-square-foot bubble to a 4,300-square-foot event venue in a matter of minutes. Designed by Spanish architecture firm DOSIS, the Second Dome was installed in East London to host community events organized by non-profit organization Shuffle.
The Second Dome was commissioned by creative workspace provider Second Home as a space where families of East London can gather and attend film screenings, design workshops and other community activities. The Second Dome can be quickly installed to accommodate different activities and span large areas. With a thickness of less than a millimeter, the pneumatic structure responds to wind and pressure and requires little energy for fabrication or assembly.
Founders Forum 2016, a community organization for global entrepreneurs, also commissioned the Second Dome for a series of events centered around innovation and design, with speakers David Adjaye and iPod co-creator and Nest founder Tony Fadell.
