A roof for a navigator's house
The dome of the Navigatorernes Hus
Why It's Interesting
The dome design was inspired by diving bell helmets, which (beginning in the late 1600s) people placed upon their heads and filled with the air they would breath while exploring under water. The helmet was either attached to a suit or rested directly on the vict..., on the explorer's shoulders. The head turned within the helmet, and the diver could only see out where the portholes were available.
