Kinetic Dome

Nayef Nuhad
University of Science and Technology
Saudi Arabia

The PROJECT is an upgrading of the future dome concept by Karam Baki which replaced the use of concrete with glass and special steel structure for creating more environmental friendly buildings within spherical shapes. As such, both water and grass were symbols for the need to recreate more suitable architecture to the environment.

Additionally, THE PRESENT PROJECT used this type of kinetic architectural facade containing small units that correspond to the sun in their openings. THEREFORE it can be used in several projects including Galleries, Hotels, Resorts, etc.
