The grid

The grid

The domes are connected through the grid. An infrastructural maze to enable transport from dome to dome. The space is also used to house hotels, bars, restaurants and small vegetable gardens.

Self-organizing city

The grid is based on an architectural vision developed by a Finish architect, Marco Casagrande. He developed the paracity concept. The city is to be seen as a bio-urban organism that is growing on the principles of Open Form.

Biomimicry: Frigate bird

The grid has its own independent water distribution system. A system with flexible water sacks is used. An organic pipe (or root) uses capillary forces to suck up water from aquifers. The sack fills itself with drinking water. The sack mimics the gular sac from frigate birds.
