Geometrical Domes and Large Sized Polyhedra

The Syntonic Geometry Workshop creates geometric shapes since 1981. In this time, José Manuel Dugo, it’s founder, has been investigating the application of geometry for personal development and conscient habitat creation.

In the present day, father and son are creating large sized structures with a variety of functions: domes for cultural events, structures to create shading in summer, geodesic greenhouses, …

The regular and Archimedian polyhedra create a wide variety of possibilities. The pureness of these forms and their proportions offer us spaces of great beauty and harmony.

The structures are constructed with tubes of iron or other metals. The enclosing is created with textiles. The mobile structures use a system that enables easy assembly and disassembly. The fixed structures are installed in alignment with the directions of space.
