Lotus Dome

LOTUS DOME is a living dome made out of hundreds of heat sensitive smart flowers which fold open in response to human warmth and light, creating an interactive play of light and shadow. This dynamic relation between people and technology is what Roosegaarde calls ‘Techno-Poetry’.

Winner of A’Design Gold Award and Media Architecture Award Denmark.

LOTUS DOME premiered in the 17th-century Sainte Marie Madeleine Church in Lille, France. LOTUS MODEL is a more compact lotus flower which blooms in reaction to the heat of visitors’ hand and light.
