Skidome Denmark / CEBRA


 Our friends from CEBRA just shared the news of their next endeavor for designing a skidome in Randers, .  Serving as more than a series of complex slopes for those to enjoy, the project will become the largest skidome in the world.  When viewed in isolation, the massing’s gentle curves and minimalistic exterior treatment read as a subtle strategy to incorporate the slopes; yet, only when seen at the city scale does the project’s 1,000,000+ sqf  (including a hotel, restaurant and shops) allow the viewer to understand the project’s potential urban presence.

More after the break.
