It Grows Like a Strange Flower was a project by Ben Judd in which a temporary, re-usable geodesic dome would be erected on a small island on the River Don in Sheffield.

With an emphasis on reusing found materials, the dome was designed and constructed with the help of Sheffield-based architectural practice Studio Polpo. Carefully selected individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds helped construct the dome, and then slept there overnight, eating a communal meal made from ingredients sourced from the river and its environs. The dome was deconstructed the following day.
