“Look at Silesia” – an event under such a title (that also seemed to be the idea behind the entire endeavour), being the climax of a wider advertising campaign of the Silesian Voivodeship abroad and taking place in Germany’s Düsseldorf, was virtually constructed completely around dome halls delivered by Freedomes.
Five spherical tents set up on Markplatz in the heart of Düsseldorf’s old town and proudly representing such Silesian attractions as “Industrial Monuments Route” or Polish Jura, thanks to their innovative structures and shapes, allowed to break off from the somewhat archaic image of the region both in the country and Europe.
The shape of geodesic domes was enough to arouse interest of both the residents and the tourists visiting Düsseldorf for long enough to encourage them to check what’s inside. Luckily, their modernity didn’t end on just the spherical tents and a whole lot of attractions awaited inside, among others a mining lift simulator at the “Industrial” pavilion or a tourist cycling simulator, where the speed of film display depended on the pedalling rate.
The innovative structures used during the event and delivered by Freedomes consisted of: two spherical F30 tents, two spherical F75 tents and one spherical F150 tent.
