Watch Back Webinars | Iona - Opening up the night sky
14th April 2021
Iona, P&O’s latest and most sustainable cruise ship and features a spectacular new entertainment venue, the SkyDome. The 41m long, 29m wide and 4m high glass-domed roof gives uninterrupted views of the sky, the sea and the shoreline. The structure is the first of its kind to be installed on a cruise ship, breaking new boundaries in the ocean liner industry.
Hear how we used parametric digital design tools to optimise the dome’s structure, minimise weight and design it to take some of the world’s most extreme weather events. Associate Kosmas Moupagitsoglou and Senior Engineer Lorenzo Santelli are joined by special guests Martin Francis (Francis Design) and Geraldine Phillips (P&O Cruises) who gives the client’s perspective on how the dome will open up the night sky.
