We contemplated a homemade 25ft diameter dome frame from a friend to create a portable, multi-purpose enclosed dome for use with our "Green Equity Building System". With some minor improvements to the dome, it could be quickly erected for use as a community gathering tent, construction area, storage shed, emergency shelter, or other community purpose. Here is an artist's rendition of this useful structure:
We envision using portable, temporary dome structures to jumpstart sustainable building and community development projects, and to host festivals, benefit concerts & fund raisers as needed.
This is a fantastic
opportunity to construct something that could easily
become a modern focal point of the local community, and a
great way to further the understanding of environmental
issues. For inquisitive minds, it may also be the first
step into engaging in the art of sustainable building and
the potential for everyday tools and materials as
potential building components.
