Habibi Dome is a collective process in at eye-level and across borders.
People, fleeing their home countries and arriving into Northern Greece develop a building together with experts and people from all over the world.
The geodesic dome by Richard Buckminster Fuller is online and accessible to everyone nowadays. Taking and developing this open structure is used as a statement as well as an image: An image for collaboration across borders where people act collectively and self-determined.
The resulting room is used for learning and teaching, for inviting friends, for meeting, gathering and discussing, as well as for making music and for concerts. The building measures 6 meters in its diameter and 3 meters in its height and is still in use in Katsikas.
The primary target of the project Habibi Dome is to empower people to access knowledge sharing and to generate social participation. Everyone should gain this in a self-determined and collective process.
