Winner 2016: Full Proof – Domes

“Full Proof” is a series of episodes presented by children from different countries. In this particular episode, eleven-year-old Aung, a postcard seller in a Myanmar temple town, asks himself how the temple domes were built and why they don’t fall down. He learns how to make a bridge from noodles and how to walk on eggshells. He also finds out what triangles have to do with architecture. Finally Aung takes on the task of building a dome big enough to crown his own souvenir shop.
