Dome of Visions 3.0 in Aarhus, Denmark by Atelier Kristoffer Tejlgaard

Friday, May 26th, 2017

Article source: Atelier Kristoffer Tejlgaard 

The architect behind Dome of Visions, Kristoffer Tejlgaard, sees sustainability in construction as an absolutely necessary and worthwhile entrance to his subject.

To his students, the former Pritzker award winner, Glenn Murcutt, formulated a very elegant approach to architecture: “Touch the Earth Lightly with your housing footprint”, and with that he did not only consider a building built on a few pillars. He asks the question: Where does the building materials come from? What damage has been done, for example, in the land area where the materials are extracted? How will the construction be returned to the ground again, or can it be recycled, recycled or assembled in a way so that it can be separated, changed and used in new contexts?

Apré Ski in Príchovice, Czech Republic by e-MRAK – Martin Rajniš

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

Article source: e-MRAK – Martin Rajniš

A Rajmach dome. “Après ski” is where skiers go for a drink after a day on the slopes and relax with their friends. Aleš Voverka, a friend of mine, is building a small skiing area in Příchovice and was very enthusiastic at the prospect that this experimental construction would serve as the fi rst après ski. We hope that sometime around the middle of 2008 the fi rst dome will be transported by helicopter to the site. It is a pioneering step in the fi eld of wooden construction, which was created by Honza Mach for his thesis project. He built it himself, only with the help of several fellow students. And with only eight kilograms of wood per square meter of structure with a span of 9–12 m! That’s what I call success.
