Ferrocement arcade models can efficiently adapt to any style of creative geometry. Columns support over sized column tops which are like inverted vaults. The center vault in blue was actually a copy of these inverted vaults, the same height but scaled twice as wide. (Below).

Next, below is an arcade of 32 inverted vaults, (like oversized column tops) and 17 translucent vault sky lights. This CAD geometry was rendered in "Quickpaint" on left and "Renderzone" on right.

I expect to add more here later... In the mean time here is a link to Steve and his maestros who make very colorful vaults in Mexico.

Searching Synergy ........ Free Exchange of Ideas

Enersearch was incorporated in 1980 but never materialized financially.  A  synergy of concepts were developed and are reflected in the pages of this series.  The synergy continues as a single handed effort of Bo Atkinson, in Maine, USA.
