Plans, history and how-tos on making “Hexayurts” – “A hexayurt is a new design for refugee shelters. The “hexayurt design pattern” simplifies geodesic dome geometry so that it can be built using standard 4′ x 8′ sheet goods of whatever kind are appropriate to the task at hand: hexacomb cardboard, plywood, foam. The design has been slightly tested in the real world and stands up very well.” [via] – Link & assembly video of an 8′ hexayurt.
