Geodesic Dome

Geodesic dome is a relatively new concept in event spheres and tents, but there is no doubt that dome tents are taking the world by storm and becoming increasingly popular. triDOMES produces geodesic dome tents in Turkey and has been producing and projecting in Ankara Macun Mahallesi for more than 15 years.

History of Geodesic Tents

Let’s take a step back in time to when the first dome tent was created by American engineer and architect Richard Buckminster Fuller in the late 1940s. The architect, called “Bucky”, produced a sphere-like structure with a structural skeleton containing minimal materials, balanced thanks to its structure consisting of triangular networks.

Although Bucky was a geodesic dome pioneer, he wasn’t actually the first to implement it. The first geodesic dome was designed after World War I by a man named Walther Bauersfeld, chief engineer of the Carl Zeiss academy of optics, for a planetarium to house his own planetarium project. The planetarium was built in Germany, and a larger dome was later opened to the public in 1926, dubbed the “Wonder of Jenna.”

Dome tents are reinforced with metal structural rods that form a complex arrangement of poles to support the model. TriDomes uses aircraft-grade aluminum poles whenever possible to ensure the material is both durable and weatherproof over the long term.
