The Darwin Bucky is a parametric dome tent that is anchored to the ground. Inspired by Buckminster Fuller's Geodesic exoskeletal architecture, Bucky is made from laser cut 1mm folded metal sheets that are bolted together to create an insulated, column free, air-conditioned space. It is made to order in two sizes - 11m diameter/6m height and 18m diameter/9.5m height. One can also make ‘Bucky clusters’ by interconnecting multiple Bucky units.
Bucky has an integrated lighting, display and sound system that can connect to an external power source. It can be assembled or dismantled in a matter of days and stored or transported in a shipping container.
Darwin Bucky is a black box that can be used as an exhibition gallery, a town hall, an expo centre, a performance arena or even a bar and nightclub. It is designed to be placed in public gardens, exhibition grounds or even in a city centre.
