Amateur Architecture Studio’s dome is constructed entirely of rough wood sticks and metal hook-and-eye connections. As the architects note, the structure requires no base and can be built anywhere in one day by twenty people; it can be taken apart just as easily, leaving no trace of its presence behind. It is made from only one element that, repeated, forms a domed shape almost of its own accord. Decay of a Dome was built first in China, and the changes during and after construction there were noted and used to plan the installation in Venice.
