Duck Dome

Shelter | Garden Structure

Bamboo strips are a great way to create a ferrocement dome structure. In this project we explore how we can create a small dome using this technique using bamboo strips and steel mesh along with a lightweight ferrocement render.

The project was to create a small dome for ducks in the permaculture garden along with a small pond. We used a parabolic shape for the dome as it is a natural shape for bamboo strips when bent and it allows for a taller structure which is easy for adults to access.

It was built as part of a construction workshop over the weekend and created a strong structure that could take heavy loads.
