Paper Dome recently popped up in Beirut’s Sanayeh Garden. A dream team of 10 local architecture students, guided by Atelier YokYok and Ulysse Lacoste, built the structure in just seven days. Its skeleton was assembled from local pine wood, and the skin is made up of folded newspaper “tiles”.
The ephemeral structure, which offers shade and shelter to curious passersby, rests on one point so that it can be easily lifted. Once inside, visitors can enjoy the tranquility of the space and reflect on the fragility of life.
