Dome in Fessenheim

Since SimplyDifferently.org I'm into circular and spherical architecture, and so I was surprised to spot this dome, and when I entered the bath attendant gave me a few details - although it's not really about traveling, I enclose a few photos here too:

  • Diameter: 23m
  • Built: 1995
  • Problems:
    • leakage of rain
    • when the dome is closed loud noise distribition through the entire dome (common problem with domes)
    • insufficient insulation and therefore high energy cost at winter time
