Dodecalis is named after the dodecahedron – the 12-sided Platonic solid based on pentagons. Dodecalis’ main feature is 3 domes based on a stellated and truncated variant of the dodecahedron.
The dome’s asymmetry serves to disorientate the visitor in a way to make exploration more exciting and new design techniques enable a fluid breakdown of the form into flowing neon-like contour lines of vibrant intensity. Above eye-level one can see more clearly the dome’s pentagonal foundation and can sense what it is like to be inside a Platonic solid.
Dodecalis’ tranquil Main Dome carries on with the motif of neon-like tracery and an imposing Blue Tree completes the ensemble.
