Demonstrated and explained with cut out models

Each of the models in this book is both beautiful and interesting to make.

With the aid of its models, this book explains the underlying theory for designing geodesic domes and shows how a sphere can be divided and subdivided symmetrically in order to create dynamic buildings which are light and strong and also have no need of internal support.
