Harvest Dome 2.0

Harvest Dome 2.0 is a giant diaphanous orb for the New York City waterways. A 24ft diameter cupola we designed and constructed from over 450 umbrellas frames, and made buoyant with a ring of 128 empty two-liter soda bottles, Harvest Dome transforms the eight-pointed steel frame, a quintessential piece of urban detritus, into the transcendent form of an architectural dome for the water, to float alongside and bring attention to the tidal salt-marshes of the City.
