Alosha Lynov Some useful info about geodesic domes
Geodesic domes have the same structure as living molecule in our bodies. Thus said it is a perfect space that is pleasing and natural for the eye and our body. 3D Domes provide a unique environment for every use. We combine the sacred geometry of Buckminster Fuller with our progressively designed covers to bring you this futuristic, synergetic structure. 3D Dome offers a modular concept for any event or an exhibition.
All elements of 3D Dome can be perfectly combined with each other. This offers maximum flexibility in the realization of individual event ideas. Mobility and versatility: All membranes come with circular doorways offering more flexibility. Every doorway can be connected to another through the 3D Deco developed waterproof tunnel system which allows a combination of several domes to create a domescape.
The window openings can take many varying applications such as PVC airing vents or a climate control tubes. Interior Freedom: The entire dome interior is open to your creativity! Our geodesic dome frames are freestanding with no support poles to obstruct your valuable floor plan!? Structurally sound: Our steel tubing framework is extremely strong and can handle any wind or rain loads. "Domes are the Strongest, lightest and most efficient means of enclosing space yet known to man." Richard Buckminster Fuller.
Not only is the dome aerodynamic, but it has a dynamic center of gravity that stands strong against wind. Gravitational forces are not linear, but spherical. The Earth's center is the origin of the gravitational forces of the Earth. This dynamic is present in all of nature and is also present in the dome. It is physics, tried and tested, "Nature's own Geometry". Many progressive architects replicate nature's designs to insure structural integrity. R. Buckminster Fuller, a man ahead of his time, published the math for his geodesic dome in the early 1950's. He was immediately contacted by a German scientist who proclaimed it is the exact math found in the cell wall. Current scientists have named nano particles "Bucky Balls". Russian scientists have photos from space showing the earth as an icosahedron.
Anchoring the Frame: Your dome frame comes with the appropriate anchors to secure it to the ground. Portability: 3D Dome frames pack down into small bundles that are easy to ship and handle!? Membrane consists of a double sided PVC coating with or without black out. 3D Deco can guarantee an outer skin that is 100% water tight in every tiny detail. Lycra Branded cover can be stretched over any of 3D Deco's membranes. A wide variety of flooring can be provided upon request from our reliable partners.
Heating and cooling: 3D Domes can be heated or cooled in the same way as a conventional marquee. Our domes in summer are 10-15 C cooler that outside temperature due to a low pressure zone that happens inside the dome just by opening a few windows in the right places. Domes can also come with insulation for the really cold days.
Energy Efficiency: "Only an energy-efficient, resource-efficient design could work for everyone." - R. Buckminster Fuller
There are two reasons domes are energy efficient. The ambient airflow inside the dome is continuous, with no stagnant corners, requiring less energy to circulate air and maintain even temperatures. The energy required to heat and cool a dome is approximately 30% less than a conventional building. The second is the high volume-to-surface-area ratio, requiring less building materials to enclose more space. The lower the ratio of a building's outside perimeter to its enclosed living area, the less energy is required for building, heating and cooling. The sphere has 25% less surface area per volume enclosed than any other shape. The dome combines the inherent stability of triangles with the advantageous volume-to-surface-area ratio of a sphere. The larger the dome, the more efficient it becomes. This is demonstrated by doubling the diameter, which encloses eight times the volume.
Our experienced partners for lighting, 3D projections and audio technology for climate control and interior planning can be included in the whole planning process in order to realise any product, expo or event world.About Domes: Sacred Geometry
R. Buckminster Fuller-inventor, architect, engineer, mathematician, poet and cosmologist was one of the most enlightened mystics of the last century. Fuller was truly a man ahead of his time. His lifelong goal was the development of what he called "Comprehensive Anticipatory Design Science"-the attempt to anticipate and solve humanity's major problems through the highest technology by providing "more and more life support for everybody, with less and less resources." "Bucky" is best known for the invention of the geodesic dome-the lightest, strongest, and most cost-effective structure ever devised. The geodesic dome is able to cover more space without internal supports than any other enclosure. It becomes proportionally lighter and stronger the larger it is. The geodesic dome is a breakthrough in shelter, not only in cost-effectiveness, but in ease of construction and energy efficiency. The geometry allows proper circulation of the ambient air with little energy input.
Bucky was an expert at observing nature and extrapolating its fundamental geometry. Fuller was part of a lineage of master geometrists, one of which is credited with being the father of science and philosophy, Pythagoras.
The Pythagorean schools and their knowledge of the "music of the spheres" are the foundation of inspiration for all of the famous geometers that followed from Plato to Kepler. All of them had a profound sense that the geometry found in nature is fundamental to creation. Now many new and exciting unification theories are using these fundamental geometries to solve complex space equations, which supports the view that geometry structures space, and is fundamental to creation.
Imagine yourself living in a highly structured space replicating the fundamental geometry of creation?the same geometry at the root of heavenly spheres and of the molecules of your body.
Many healers use the dome because they believe that geometry helps reorganize the cells of the body and hence improve health and creativity.
Another advantage to the dome is that it can be used to remove stray electromagnetic waves by grounding the metal structure into the earth.
The ultimate geometry of creation is the sphere, i.e. atoms, molecules, the earth, the sun and the stars, etc. All these spheres mathematically generate a point of singularity at the center where all waves cancel out to create stillness - the Bindu point of ancient meditation practice. Although the dome is a hemisphere, it emulates these dynamics.
Many meditators use the domes to enhance their practice with great success. Similarly, because of these spherical coordinates the acoustics inside the dome are phenomenal and exquisite. Chanting at the point of singularity in the center of the dome generates the effect of hearing yourself from within. Many musicians enjoy the dome for practice and performing.
