University of Greenwich, UK
Through an investigation of typologies, technicalities and symbolism of Russian onion domes, this thesis proposes a 21st-century onion form. Taking into account computerised design techniques, narrative and aesthetic functions of Russian textiles as well as the developments in “smart textile” technologies, the author offers an unprecedented, updated Russian onion dome form of international museum quality in the socio-cultural, historical and aesthetic context of Venice.
