Coverage of patent application Legal monopoly Shape


(timber & composite materials)

Connectors for geodesic dome Construction method


Modularity
(the only modular geodesic dome with modular distributions in several symmetry classes)

www.stardome.ro

Added value

www.stardome.ro

Added value
Better geodesic dome Simpler
(few execution details)

Stronger

(structural redundancy ensures big resilience to structural damage) (self-supporting structure, no scaffolding needed)
(unlike classical Buckminster Fuller domes) (efficient cutting of panels)

Easier to build
Modular Cheaper

www.stardome.ro

Added value
Better building concept Standardized
(only few types of components)

Versatile

(huge number of available configurations and development options) (plenty of space for creativity)

Customizable Upgradeable

(never to become obsolete)


(reusable as a whole or as parts, easy to repair and to refurbish)

Deconstruct able

www.stardome.ro

Added value
Suitable for both horizontal & vertical developments

www.stardome.ro

Added value
Better prefabricated home
Personal & funny
Flexible & versatile Upgradeable & customizable Deconstruct able No value decay & high residual value
www.stardome.ro

Added value
Bio-mimetic multi-modular development with high visual impact
Domes Fractals Spirals

www.stardome.ro

Added value
Probably the Holy Grail of sustainable housing
Compliance with the demands of LEED, BREEAM & Cradle-to-Cradle (C2C) standards
Low environmental impact

Energy efficiency
Readiness to carry all green tech hardware, including renewable energy (wind, solar, geothermal) Repeated life-cycles reuse of the building and of the components

www.stardome.ro

Added value
Increased protection to geoclimatic hazards
Extreme temperatures
(from polar to desert conditions)

High winds
(including hurricanes & tropical storms)

Low speed floods


(including hurricane waves)

Sunrise - Dunes of Merzouga - Erg Chebbi

Flash floods & tsunamis


(it acts as a life-saving equipment)

Fire & tornadoes


(as underground buildings)

Added value
Amazing acoustics
High reflectivity of outer sounds
(see similarities with the F117 Stealth bomber)

Good modal behavior


(the irrational ratios between the lengths of the components ensure a low reverberation environment)

A quiet indoor space A space of harmony and meditation


(the golden ratio everywhere)

Music loves the domes

Added value
Life-nurturing space
An energetic environment
(due to the extensive use of the golden ratio, the sacred proportion of life, known by the Ancients)
