Hexagonal Architecture No.2

By Nidagravel UK in Architecture & Design Tuesday, February 02, 2021

Architects specify Nidagravel gravel stabilisation products to ensure the best quality gravel stabiliser for their project. The honeycomb structure of Nidagravel provides its strength and the cell containment system to stabilise the gravel. We are always interested to see the use of the hexagon on in architecture and landscape design.

The image above shows the use of hexagons in a geodesic structure that forms a dome. The project was designed by Danish architects Kristoffer Tejlegaard and Benny Jepsen for the Roskilde County music festival in Denmark. The geodesic structure was inspired by a C240 molecule and formed using plywood, which was glued and screwed to create the prefabricated panels. As you will see from the video below the structure was prefabricated off site and then constructed in 8 days to provide a meeting and gathering place at the festival. Now thats one impressive geodesic plywood dome.
