I suggest you take a look at the framing of the Mormon Tabernacle at Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

The roof structure was built with a "Lattice truss" similar to that used in wooden ship building.

Perhaps one could adapt this to a bell shaped roof framing structure.

Check out the link below and click on the "Tabernacle Under Construction" link.
