We present Leonardome, an educational resource for constructing self-supporting domes.
We present an educational resource that allows you to build structures designed by Leonardo da Vinci. Through different geometric patterns – present in the Codex Atlanticus – we can construct “self-supporting domes”: their components don’t require any fixing elements.
The principle of Leonardome is the ‘reciprocal frame’ of Leonardo. That is to say, the three-dimensional assembly of the components (wooden pieces) which support each other.
With this resource, we will explore concepts relating to geometry, technology, art and history. Will you join us?
