Sacred Domes

Learn how to design and build your own upcycled geodesic dome. In this workshop we’ll learn how to make a 4 meter radius dome using recycled pet bottles. Gain knowledge about possible shapes, materials and cooperative building dynamics. 


Explore alternative living methods in the Sacred Domes workshop. A geodesic dome is a semi-spherical structure created from triangles. It’s decreased surface area requires less building materials and offers one of the most efficient interior atmospheres for human dwellings, as air and energy are allowed to circulate freely inside it.
