Every two years, Portugal is home to the Boom Festival where artists gather from all around the world to pain, sculpt and perform.
This year, the Do Lab presented their largest festival structure to date. The Boom Dance Temple measured over 50,000 total feet and was a 4-5 month project using only locally sourced materials.
To accomplish this task, the team used a new material called “Vigas” which was glued laminated timber. The engineered lumber allowed the Do Lab to create massive spans with one piece of timber without having too many connections.
Take a look at this incredible structure in the pictures below:
