The geodesic dome—with its hemispherical, thin-shell structure based on a geodesic polyhedron—is nothing more than a more mathematical tent, which means it’s a solid option when you want a simple structure to rest in beneath the stars. The Hubs Geodesic Dome Kit will get you going. The simple, snap-together kit makes a durable geodesic dome that’s easy to construct. With stainless steel, automotive-grade metalwork and a scalable design, it’s also the perfect platform for creations of any size. It’s not prefab, and it’s not the end-all be-all in terms of geodesic dome options, but this kit is a great starting point or a great learning tool if you’re trying to teach someone the best way to survive in the real world.
