Paper Dome

Project Description

The first experiment in geodesic dome was constructed 15ft in diameter and packaging cardboard was used as the main spanning material. The joinery or the hub was an assembly of paper tube and 6mm plywood pieces that acted like adapter junctions for the cardboard struts.

The dome was designed for testing the idea and sequence of construction, which was later damaged by humidity and curious monkeys from our vicinity.
