The Algarden Greenhouse Zome

The Algarden Greenhouse Zome

Lots of Food from Vacant Lots!

This inspired zonohedral structure is a natural hybrid: part geodesic dome, part yurt, and part jewel. The zome’s hybrid geometry allows it to adapt to unusual spaces or requirements, and the jewel-like symmetry inspires all who set foot inside.

This project is a prime example of how digital design and fabrication can achieve precision craftsmanship. The modular parts were fabricated in San Francisco at Zomadic and assembled on site in one day.
