Domes Village: New Clark City’s reclaimed timber domes linked by bridges
The Domes Village is a series of four dome-like structures—each with its theme—linked by suspended bridges and located in the River Park in New Clark City, Philippines. Both a large-scale outdoor art installation to be visited and a playground to be explored, it forms an interactive site of creativity and plays for both children and grownups. The domes are made out of reclaimed hardwood from old houses, using skilled carpentry, combined with custom-made and computer-machined steel connections, and designed using parametric modeling. It is a marriage between vernacular forms and high-tech precision, made possible by the international collaboration between Silverlens Galleries, local artist Bernardo Pacquing, Rotterdam-based designers Superproject and Summum Engineering.
