Planning permission has been granted for a biodome complex designed by UK architect WilkinsonEyre and local firm Basalt in Iceland’s Reykjavik region.
The Aldin Biodomes will be sited on ridge overlooking the the ElliÃ°aárdalur valley, where it will give views of Iceland’s midnight sunsets during the summer and the northern lights during the winter.
The complex itself will contain a main nature dome with a specialty restaurant and market for Icelandic products, a tropical dome showcasing exotic plants and a "farm lab" offering information about local food production. All will be heated using geothermal energy.
