Topotheque Design Studio in collaboration with Fab Lab Ioannina completed the Tzoumerka DOME in Epirus, Greece. The Dome Structure was the final outcome of Hack-A-Dome Workshop organised under the auspices of the Distributed Design Market Platform (https://distributeddesign.eu/) and it features the IP Node, a joint module designed parametrically in order to accomodate different sizes and building materials. Great props to P2P Lab for their interesting work in the field of the Commons and for the curation of the workshop.
Topotheque Design Studio in collaboration with FAB LAB Ioannina invites every creative person to the Hack-A-Dome Digital Design and Fabrication Workshop which will take place at Tzoumakers Lab in Kalentzi in Epirus region in Greece.
Hack-A-Dome Workshop is part of the Open Source Agricultural Workshop which is organised by P2P Lab for the Distributed Design Market Platform - DDMP(https://distributeddesign.eu/). Program partners are the IAAC > Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, the Politecnico di Milano, the Fab Lab Berlin among others.
From the vernacular construction technique of Pindos’ Shacks and Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic domes, to open data and modern digital media, the participants of the workshop will have the opportunity to follow and co-design the construction of a self-supporting structure on a 1 : 1 scale through the familiarization with traditional techniques and modern technological means.
The workshop will foster an investigation of the design and construction of the prototype nodes that make up the self-supporting structure through parametric digital design and fabrication (3D Printing, CNC Milling, Laser cutting) and through the use of traditional tools .
A special focus will be given to reciprocal structure techniques, so that the participants can creatively hack and construct the self-supporting structure.
The main objective of the workshop will be to provide the necessary know-how to the participants so that they will be able to create a construction based on their own hack, designed to their own standards and needs.
Last but not least, based on “Design Global, Manufacture Local” state of mind, the workshop designs and plans will become available on DDMP’s open source platform at the end of the workshop towards the diffusion of design information and its updating and configuration by other makers, architects and engineers from all over the world.

Looking forward to seeing you in Kalentzi!
