Geodesic dome sizes

What size dome do I need?

Lotus Domes can supply whatever size geodesic dome you require; from a 4m camping dome to 20m or larger venue dome. The cross-section and plan views show an adult to scale to help you visualise the different size geodesic domes.

We have found the best design for mobile use is a slightly truncated form of the 3v dome, often referred to as a “3/8ths” dome. This maximises floor area and minimises materials and so costs for manufacture, storage, and transport. We can supply higher profile domes, for example, “5/8ths” for bespoke purposes such as lighting and scene facilities for mobile theatres.
