Advantages Over Conventional Designs
- Strength: Geodesic domes gain great strength by distributing loading through all structural memeers. Also, their naturally rounded shape directs wind around them, and allows snow to slide off.
- Cost: Geodesic domes often have more than double or even triple the floor space of conventional rectangular designs, for around half the price
- Portability: The light weight and relatively short length of each frame strut allow any dome kit to be divided up into bundles of manageable weight.
- Versatility: Any geodesic dome kit can have many uses, and may be easily converted into a structure that suits a different application
