Bottle Dome

Place: Rodengo, Italy

Date: July, 2015

Partners: Offgrid Italia

The birth of an association

The making of this dome gave rise to Offgrid Italia, an Italian association dedicated to living free and sustainably in Italy. Over the summer of 2015 a three day tire and bottle wall workshop turned into a full dome build. People came from Turin, Venice, Bologna and Milan to contribute to the experience. Everyone got on so well that we organised more workshops and created an association!

Inspired by Africa

A friend saw our work and was inspired to build a similar structure on his land in Burkina Faso. One thing led to another and the following year we travelled to build an earthship dome.
