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.

It was probably brilliant 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.
The team also have a pretty cool video of the whole construction process behind the fantastic structure.
The interior space looks radically different to the outside.
The shell was entirely built-up out of interlacing hexagon shapes.
All in all its a great project and we hope to see it arise again at a future festival.
