Conceptual design for the interior with a cross–section through the dome.
Five adventure experiences in the naturalist setting of a controlled "Biosphere" environment



Concepted for a site just off the coast of Japan, EXLINE played a key role in the development of an innovative natural science and entertainment center called the Japan Nature Dome. Assisting an LA based creative development company called CINEMATIX, EXLNE took a lead role in the generation and presentation of this blue-sky conceptual package.

The large dramatic domed structure was conceived as an interactive interpretive center that housed a number of automated adventure experiences within a controlled "Biosphere" environment. Following a theme of environmental awareness, the climate, water, and light conditions inside the dome supported an array of indigenous species of flora and fauna that would be displayed in a perfect natural balance.

EXLINE was involved in the concepting, conceptual design, and presentation of this "environmental exploratorium" concept package. EXLINE also researched and developed the specific themed attractions housed within the structure. Food, beverage, and merchandising concepts were also generated.
