Bucky Bar
Rotterdam, 2010
With DUS Architects.

Geodesic dome made out of umbrellas, an ‘unsolicited’ project intended to demonstrate the potential of spontaneous, temporary architecture.  

Project blurb

‘Buckminster Fuller showed us how minimal energy domes could open a way to a more environmentally sustainable future, could an umbrella dome lead the way to a more socially sustainable future?

The Bucky Bar is a full-scale model of such a future. A spontaneous public building made from the most common of materials, assembled with the resourcefulness and skill of architects. It shows the power of space for spontaneous gathering, for improvised shelters to host conversations, debates, games or even parties.’
