Domes geometry

• The spherical shape of the bubble is obtained by surface tension. Tension force the sphere forms because the sphere has the smallest surface area for a given volume.

• Richard Buckminster Fuller (born Richard Buckminster Fuller; July 12, 1895 - July 1, 1983) - American architect, designer, engineer and inventor.

• Based on the established nature of the sphere shape Buckminster Fuller invented the construction, which later became known as Geodesic Dome.


• Fuller, in his invention, was able to realize the sphere fields construction with triangular lines panels. It’s basis is steel frame of straight metal rods, which are geodesic lines, each of lines connects two points of an imaginary curved surface.

• Thanks to established nature form sphere covers the largest volume in the smallest space and allows using a minimum amount of construction materials to cover the largest area.

• Our domes have high aerodynamic performance and high levels of snow and wind loads, and are resistant to seismic ground motions. More than 25 years domes successfully applied to the Antarctic radar installations, where wind speed reaches 200 km / h. This strength stems from the fact that the stress of the earthquake, wind or snow gravity has evenly distributed on all construction points. The triangular components geometry adds strength to the dome shapes.

• The structure of the dome is made up of hexagons and pentagons, and it is a replica of the molecular structure of the most durable substance on earth: diamond, graphite and carbyne. These molecules are called fullerenes.

• Geodesic domes are recognized as the most practical building systems known to us on today. It is one of the most solid structures on the planet, with one of the lightweight, cheapest, fastest and easiest in the construction.

• Dome construction is self-supported, within any columns, beams and apertures. Inside the dome on the construction connecting nodes could be placed light, sound and lifting equipment.
