SMITH'S BUILD GEODESIC DOME Tim and Debbi Smith build a concrete geodesic dome with the help of family and friends. Working for over ten years to finally complete their home. All weekends, after-work hours, and full vacations were sacrificed to realize their dream. Now, their dream is a reality. This video montage focuses on the shell construction which took about two years. Inside construction took us about 8 years because we worked on it after our regular jobs and weekends. This is a kit from American Ingenuity Domes. We will be uploading a video of the finished inside very soon. Thanks to all who have watched this. I had no idea that there was such a big interest in these domes.
building a geodesic dome Geodesic dome kit from Sunrisedomes USA. It was the height of summer when I assembled the structure. Later I created an outer covering from large plastic sheets and used the parachute inside.This dome has been used as a testing theatrette for my 360 degree fulldome video productions Since then I have constructed two more domes, including an inflatable 6 meter (20 foot) for occasional exhibition. I'm currently annoying engineers worldwide to assist me in manufacturing economical seamless tiles to form the interior dome screen surface. Please leave comments, and , oh yeah, give Justin Goslin () a holla if you want to build your own dome. Cheers. Jeff

Straw Bale Geodesic Dome This is a time lapse of the creation of a straw bale geodesic dome. It is located in the newly created 'Bustan Neighborhood' on Kibbutz Lotan in the Arava Valley, Israel. The Neighborhood is designed to house the students of the Ecovillage/Permaculture Design course, The Green Apprenticeship.

"Collinsport" by Geodesic Gnome, Connor Kizer and Stephanie Barber. The Final Scene... John Berndt, Stephanie Barber, Ric Royer and Connor Kizer's COLLINSPORT is an inquiry into the structural anomalies of Dark Shadows (1966-1971), the American gothic-occult soap-opera famous for its unstable cast, momentum-less plot, and unusually over-elaborate dialog. In this multimedia production of COLLINSPORT performed by Geodesic Gnome, all these elements and more are made to spin faster and faster in a test-tube until a precipitate of pure, undiluted reason drops onto the floor and shatters along with the known universe. Carved from the molten ice of popular-culture-as-psychedelic-logical-modality, the piece is a direct expression of your greatest fears about misunderstanding, enthused lethargy, and, well, vampires. Add to this the obscure theory of 'paradox paradoxes' which threatens to consume all of semantics and what have you got? A ROLLICKING GOOD TIME HAD BY ALL, THAT'S WHAT. With the immortal talents of: Connor Kizer Stephanie Barber Lexie Mountain Peter Blasser John Eaton Samuel Burt Ric Royer Sarah El Jallad John Berndt Mike Muniak Melissa Moore Peter Blasser Kate Porter Liz Meredith Geodesic Gnome is Baltimore's meta-conceptual super-group, performing boundary-defying philosophy and paradoxes-as-structure, lead by John Berndt. In this case the group is joined by Baltimore geniuses Connor Kizer and Stephanie Barber for this unique tribute to the Dark Shadows of Dark Shadows.

Between the horizons of a Kerr black hole (the "lazy geodesic") *** Please view the video (which explores the exact same black hole, but in a different trajectory) before this one, as it provides more explanation of what is going on! *** Journey of an observer perpetually stuck between the horizons of a(n ideal) Kerr black hole. (Here, the black hole has a mass of roughly one million solar masses (Schwarzschild radius = 10 light seconds) and an angular momentum at 80% of maximality (a/M=0.8).) Such a remarkable trajectory (or "lazy geodesic") has no energy and no angular momentum, and this one moreover remains in the equatorial plane; in Boyer-Lindquist coordinates, it seems to bounce back and forth between the outer and inner horizons (on this video, it starts halfway between them and going down), but it does so at "constant time". In the Penrose diagram, it is moving across universes, from black hole ("going down") to white hole ("going up") regions II again and again, never emerging to regions I and never entering regions III); the period of the motion, in the observer's proper time, is π times the Schwarzschild radius of the black hole. In the video, a blue sphere is placed outside the black hole at some distance (in every region I, but with a slightly different color of blue to differentiate sibling regions I), and the outer and inner horizons are various shades of red and green (red/orange/brown for outer, green for inner; lighter shades are white hole horizons, darker shades are black hole horizons). All spheres ...

A Geodesic Greenhouse — Year-Round Gardening at 6000 Feet Peak Moment 147: In Colorado it's cold for much of the year, but inside this cozy dome greenhouse, the plants are growing happily. Take a grand tour with Buckhorn Gardens manager and permaculturist Breigh Peterson: the greenhouse structure with its interplay of light and water, warmth and air; curving raised beds of vegetables and flowers; fish tanks moderating the temperature; vertical trellises and shelves to use vertical space. Outdoors a huge garden of row crops and a young orchard are complemented by free-roaming chickens and ducks.

How to build an Icosahedron Geodesic Dome Filmed at Gaiamone () in Costa Rica Amy and I go through step by step methods on how to make a icosahedron geodesic dome. The king grass and pvc could substituted for any type of material. Make sure the angles are all 32 degree and the 25 struts are equal length. The structure is great for a green house(grow all year) also for a fort for children.
Vermont with Ellen and Jaimie! (Re: Geodesic Dodecahedron Part 4) When I went to NYC I also spent a day in Vermont. Ellen and I visited with Jaimie at his dome on a mountain.

Daria's geodesic dome Daria and her father constructed a geodesic dome with a 3m diameter in her kindergarten. It is made of recycled cardboard tubes from the nearby garment district. The dome is wider than the room's opening, so it cannot be removed for repairs and remains in place. There are plans to convert it into a music room, or perhaps into a recording studio.

Glider Dynamics on a Geodesic Grid Cellular Automata (CA) are usually modeled in a Cartesian domain with periodic boundary conditions - which is a torus topology. If instead a geodesic grid is used, the positive curvature of the sphere makes itself known in the form of pinch-points, discontinuities, or poles. The icoasahedron distributes the curvature most evenly (in 12 equidistant points). The CA rules shown here were discovered through an interactive evolution tool. The emergent gliders are shown both on the periodic rectangle as well as on a geodesic grid. The curvature concentrated at the icosahedral points can be seen to warp the glider paths, and cause unique interactions. This is described more on the web site:
