Our dome was initially conceived as an outdoor research laboratory for environmental psychologists to investigate the influence of nature on our health and behaviour. The dome also developed into a venue for live music, lectures, Green Living Library study days, and workshops and events to promote healthy urban living.
The dome was designed in collaboration with the artist Tim Boin of Sober Industries whose body of work is inspired by sacred geometry and its relation to vibration. The dome’s harmonious biophilic design encourages guests to feel relaxed and energised by their environment, while they work, study, learn or play.
The GLL dome is a fully transparent truncated icosahedron, the natural form of the Carbon 60 molecule. The dome’s structure was constructed from Lexan and Accoya to ensure durability.
