Greg Babic sent us a link to his excellent plans for building geodesic domes out of paper (or plastic). When I was a teen, I worshiped Buckminster Fuller and geodesic structures. In my attic, I still have the “Tensegrity Modeling Kit” that I bought with my allowance money (think: hippie Tinker Toys). Looking at these PDFs, the “great circles” call to me.

I’m wondering if this newspaper hut design (http://pepperpaints.com/2008/05/13/newspaper-hut/) could be modified to create a newspaper geodesic dome. could be a great summer activity for the kids. Anyone up for the challenge?
Your domes are amazing what did you cover them in?
