DIY Wooden Dome Built From Pallets

Designed by Gianluca Stasi of the philosophical architecture firm Ctrl + Z, this playfully artistic dome serves as more than just a backyard focal point. In collaboration with research teams looking to help alleviate the cost issues associated with making more room for expanding households in poor populations, Stasi envisioned a geodesic dome made from pallet plywood as a cheap and practicable way to add onto a house. Its scope goes beyond use as an interior room, though, with a structure suited to duty as a greenhouse, a reading nook, or even a simple shed. With a couple of simple templates for cutting, wooden pallets can be easily turned into a completely functional structure of customizable size, usable for almost any purpose. Since the design is intended for resource-lacking communities, its assembly doesn’t require much more equipment than a saw and hammer, and there’s no need for trained construction workers to build it. The addition is a simple weekend project for a small group to complete, bringing attractively practical space to any yard.

With a few simple measurements and plenty of pallet plywood, a team of near-novices can cut, hammer, and assemble an entirely new living space or garden shed into existence in a day or two.

Made from hexagonal subsections (which in turn are made from precisely-cut pallet pieces), the addition is quite simple to assemble in a sweeping lattice structure.

The dome is eye-catching and even sculptural in form, a standout structure in a region of traditional, need-bound household architecture.
