One example is the Dome of Visions which implements new ideas in construction, curation and urban thinking and planing in a unique 1:1 experiment temporarily placed at different urban and rural sites. The minimalist structure is based on the 1940s ideas of American Futurist and Architect, Buckminister Fuller. The dome, as an updated version of a community center, is a place to inspire and challenge sustainable solutions.

Another project is “In 100 years – starting now” that was a one year project discussing the long-term preferred futures for sustainable societies without compromising future generations.
