Multipurpose Dome in Yamaguchi Kirara Expo Memorial Park

The design combines the soft shape of two domes, large and small, by a sinuous boundary roof into a floating next generation shape for domes.
The two domes are bound together by the distinctive eaves: the boundary roof.

The half exterior space realized by this boundary roof allows the seamless and integrated connection between interior and exterior spaces for an unprecedented open dome experience.
