this year's people's meeting in bornholm, denmark, is intended to spark debate and discussion about the future of housing. 
with a need for a venue, danish architects kristoffer tejlgaard and benny jepsen wanted to not only provide the space in which the 
event would take place, but also offer an independent piece that would in itself be a contribution. the 'people's meeting dome' is in 
essence a deconstructed geodesic dome, a mathematically resolved and structurally efficient shape that unfortunately bears little 
architectural specificity to site. a geometric wooden frame composed of triangles as the smallest unit allowed the freedom to take 
differently sized sections and extrude, scale, push and pull them to accommodate programmatical elements as needed, 
in response to its physical context. the space structurally behaves the same and allows a column-less plan with small niches and
crevices for seating and a stage.

the connections are made with custom steel plates that allow full flexibility through modularity. any group of triangular modules can 
be removed, expanded or contracted, made into a window, a door, or treated with a different veneer. the metal nodes incorporate the 
external structure as well as the interior rafters and tension cable connections. its construction possesses the potential to adapt to any
scope with the capability to adapt to changing needs. a table of stress levels was produced with engineer henrik almegaard pinpointing
four strength classes and minimizing the use of extensive material. all the wood used in the project is locally grown douglas pine,
with 2x4's and 2x6's comprising the frames, and recycled old boards wrapping the facade in different patterns.
