Project information

The Amazonica Dome of Blij- dorp Zoo in Rotterdam forms the residence for several plants and animals from the Amazone Tropi- cal Forest. The roofstructure consists of a timber geodesic dome with a free span of 56 meters. The roof is coverded with triangular transpa- rent air cushions. The innovative connector, which is develloped by Lüning, enabled construction of the dome without the need for scaffolding.

Description: General
In the role of senior structural engineer, the consulting firm Lüning was responsible for the design, the primary calculations and the detailed calculations for the dome. In addition, the firm supplied the complete construction set for the dome structure. The smart connector made it possible to build up the dome without a supporting structure.
