Heaven’s Dome. 360º projection
The Heaven Dome
La Rioja Tierra Abierta: “Pecado-Penitencia-Perdón”, Temporary Exhibition
Santo Domingo de la Calzada. La Rioja, Spain

On the occasion of the fourth edition of the exhibition La Rioja Tierra Abierta, Indissoluble builds on the roof of the defenses of the Cathedral of Santo Domingo de la Calzada a 7,5m diameter dome, with a capacity for 30 people who can lay on a couch and enjoy an immersive 360º projection.

The interior of the dome is a neutral space with round shapes, colonized by the projector cabinet that, located in the center, dominates the room. Visitors can relax on the perimetral sofa and enjoy a breathtaking visual spectacle.

The dome, built in our workshop, consists of 12 plywood segments. The exterior finish is a waterproof polyester canvas, with white PVC coating on both sides, which adapts to the geometry of the segments and protects the wooden core.
