Step–By–Step Method Of Fabrication And Erection Of Geodesic Dome From A4 Size Waste Papers

V. K. Dogra

Abstract :

Geodesic Domes are of great interest to Architects, civil engineers and the students studying in these disciplines. These can be planned from basic platonic solids or modified platonic solids. Archimedes, Euler, and many others have worked and contributed on the shapes and properties of the platonic solids. R Buckminister Fuller was the first to create large size geodesic domes based on theses geometries. This paper presents a very simple step–by–step procedure to faicate and erect geodesic dome from A4 size papers and based on the geometry of truncated icosahedron.
