• There’s No Place Like Dome

    (10/20/2017)

    The Indonesian Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC) is preparing to place a large, inflatable dome on its southernmost peninsula in Nusa Dua.

    Kompas.com reports that the dome, able to display projected images in a 360-degree arch visible both from within and from outside the structure, is set to be the newest tourist attraction at Nusa Dua is slated for opening in 2017.

    “Such a dome is a first for Indonesia and will become a gateway for Indonesian tourism on the tourism gateway of Bali,” said Jatmiko K. Santosa, a deputy director for ITDC on Friday, October 13, 2017.

    The dome, inflated by fan driven air pressure, will stand 21 meters high and have a diameter of 42 meters, is a joint venture between the ITDC and Oracle Project International who will prepare the dome and its contents. Oracle has managed similar dome projects in Mainland China, installed a screen at a fountain at Suntec in Singapore, and a laser light show in Australia.

    The dome at Nusa Dua is said to have a capacity for 1,200 people.  The dome can accommodate a 360-degree visual image display on both its interior and exterior walls and is also suitable for private and commercial functions.

    A smaller version of the dome was on display at the Pesona Mandiri Nusa Dua Fiesta held at Nusa Dua October 11-15, 2017.

    Jatimiko said the dome would remain in place at Nusa Dua for 3-years.
