At the Danish music festival, Roskilde Festival in 2012, Kristoffer Tejlgaard and Benny Jepsen erected a geodesic dome built up with separate modules.

The geodesic dome, as theorized by Buckminster Fuller, is a molecular-based structure that optimizes the use of resources while allowing for great strength and stability.

The dome was made by 3D-projecting the construction and using a CNC machine to cut the curved plywood in order to avoid complex assemblage.

Standardized units based on a web of circles on the surface of a sphere devise the geometry of the dome, which is identical to a carbon 240 molecule.
