Geodesic dome construction course, 13/14 May 2017

Join this natural building course with Ademas and learn to build a 2V geodesic dome measuring 4 meters diameter. The dome will be constructed out of wood using metal connectors. The theoretical part of the course will cover all steps to construct a small dome house starting from the foundations to the cover of the structure. We will use our prototype that we have on site to demonstrate all the necessary steps from foundation to floor to cover. The practical part of the course includes the preparation of the materials as well as the construction of the wooden dome.
