Purpose

I would like to showcase a sustainable bamboo dome that was recently set up at Vigyan Ashram, Pabal, Pune, India. The three frequency icosahedron dome uses sustainable bamboo poles. By itself, and as displayed, the bamboo dome does not serve any habitation needs or any other needs. Yet is shows that thin bamboo sticks of fairly long spans have incredible strength in right geometries.
