ALDIN will be the world’s first geo-climate Biodome when it opens its doors in 2021. Located in Rekyavik, ALDIN is a celebration of nature in the form of oases beneath glazed domes. Local food production, diverse ecosystems, programs for health, wellness, and biophilic pleasure is what’s awaiting all visitors. The available geothermal heat is the natural resource that will support the climate in the domes year-round, to enable sustainable yet lush ecosystems to thrive.
The vision of ALDIN began with the passion of founder and CEO of Spor í sandinn, Hjördís Sigurðardóttir. In the team, are the firms WilkinsonEyre Architects from London, along with engineers Atelier One and Ten. Together, these firms designed and delivered Singapore Gardens by the Bay. The Visitor Attraction Company has also been appointed as business case consultants, along local and internationally acclaimed exhibition designers Gagarin, and EFLA Consulting Engineers. Appointed as horticultural experts, MOSS is working to generate a green masterplan that changes the way people experience wellness, sustainability community and country.
