Domes are a very interesting issue in many respects they focus your creativity and make a systematic work process. Still I tried to focus on the structure rather than the form, ----- you se many Domes that are a "surface thing" , several different idears around the fact that a Dome are an indepandent shape with maximum strength ,but most do not deal with the interiors or structures . A thick shell structure will have great advanteages in this sense as it will add strength to the surface structure, still this is different than focusing on the Dome as shape for the interiour frames and as I do almost forget about the dome shape surfaces , --------Anyway a simple 3D-H structure will work very nice forming and minimising the amount of materials for a dome shape.
