The Bug Dome was inspired by the homes built by insects.It was designed to be a sheltered area where underground band performances, poetry readings, and discussions could take place during the Venice Biennale. The architects and students create structure by recomposing materials with minimal effort to total impact. The ‘bug dome’ construction is out of material in the context of the Chinese Pavilion and weak concrete in the form of cement mixed with soil.
