The Sol dome, is a pavilion that utilizes photosensitive receptors, making it fully responsive to light. This fine structure, which is located in Michigan USA, is made using a honeycomb structure. It was constructed on site using several thousand individuals woven circles of composite fibers.
The structure it self measures 8 x 4 meters, with a total weight of 40kg. Making the relatively hollow and lightweight structure.
Using a circular matrix of solar powered LED lights goes into illuminating the dome. Each fiber as it is bent charges the LED lights like a battery.
It also animates, giving it the ability to adapt and interact with its surrounding not limiting it to where it can be placed within reason. The concept of the honeycomb shape along with the underlying geometrical shapes, come from the chemical and molecular bonding between carbon atoms.
Using carbon atoms links the using of the onsite CO2 sensors, which are use in driving the patterns of the LED lights. This is done to show consistency within the project.
