Next are engraved designs as housing framework. This entails projecting patterns of your choice on to a high resolution CAD dome and generating a line of intersection. This line of intersection becomes the new tessellated surface and framework.

More dome visualization featuring elliptical skylights and stone use ideas.

Compressed renderings, and formZ modeling by Bo Atkinso.

Computer rendering here combines transparent, wireframe and solid surfaces just for experimental effect.

 

 

 

 

To Left: Kitchen sink and counter built integrally together, using ferrocement. (1978).

 

Small, minimalist but sculptural dome concept.

Ringforcement:A synergy of ferocement, concrete, masonry and curved construction.
