LED dome, Gallery El├ęphant Paname, Paris

This project consisted of providing the structural calculations for a giant carbon fibre dome, incorporating thousands of LED lights. The "new" dome is installed on the inside of an existing antique stone dome. The lightweight carbon structure has been built as a second skin and carries its own weight. It therefore does not add any additional stress to the existing structure.
