Dome FAQ's

(With special thanks to Ng Kang Lin for the contribution)

 

1) the website listed out the domes' Lifespan: Not more than 12 months. (can we build a dome with lifespan of only 1 month or it is a typo error?)
  You can have a lifespan of 12 minutes if u like, but if I don't see it when I evaluate it, then I'll consider it unbuilt. Whatever the lifespan is (less than 12 months), state it in ur INTENTION which must now be in a printed document (see Team Report).
   
2) how we are going to choose our location Along the Proposed 132 Dome Spine? Do we need to register our area first or it is based on first come first serve? (if not i think everyone will fight to choose a good location).
  You shall be allocated the site at 11.00am on 10 September. Carry your dome components to the site and get it up in 30 minutes.
   
3) About the show team identitiy, can we modify the dome by adding two horn or other design to make it more identitied?
  No. The construction (not form) shall be the team (ACTOR) identity. Explore identity in ACTOR, INTENTION, ACT.
   
4) about the material,we can use anything as long as it is recyclable?
  Yes, and u need to state what the materials can be recycled into (see Team Report).
   
5) can we draw out our idea on the paper and then show it to you ?
  Yes, make sure u bring it to class on 3 Sep 2008.
   
6) Just to clarify about the rules of the dome. At the examples of domes from previous seniors, it is stated that their dome is 'fabricated'. Does it mean our domes should be just the frame structure without any covering? Meaning open-air? It is stated that one of the rule is 'Prefrabricated'. Just to clarify. Layching, Curve Temple, 4:37pm 7Sep2008.
  Prefab construction is dry construction in which components can be assemled (plugged-in, slotted-in, screwed-on...) on site - with or without roof covering.
