An amazing exhibition of inflatable domes – inspiring interactive architecture of today!
An intricate use of inflatable domes can be found at the EXXOPOLIS Luminarium. The inspiration behind these amazingly-complicated structures is simple experimentation by designers like Alan Parkinson. Since the early 1990s, designers have been pushing the limits of dome versatility. These showpieces are some of the finest and most utilitarian in the world.
The EXXOPOLIS domes are a series of interconnected central spaces and individual-sized pathways. The domes mimic natural lighting with intense light near the apex illuminating the rest of the structure. Greens, blues, neutral hues and inviting ellipse contours have a dream-like quality. The dome’s space tends to make all visitors feel as though they are in a familiar space, but with infinite reasons to still go exploring.
The skeletal framing of these showcase domes are woven together and create the illusion of a living space reliant upon perfect angles.
Each superior perspective is an interesting occulus-like pinnacle. This is something interior design of regular dwellings has always aspired to. Apparently the secret to a truly remarkable and inspiring space a simple dome element.
Perhaps the most interesting part of this dome exhibition is the materials used. Instead of polymers and plastics, dyed natural linens are used in combination with incredible lighting effects. Light intensity variation, primary or secondary colors, and the complete absence of angular architecture play tricks on the part of the mind responsible for identifying your surrounding. Each exhibition piece is unique despite the obvious space odyssey homage. EXXOPOLIS has a genuinely original take on the future of what humans may one day call “home.”
