This structure initially was designed as a ΓΈ7m cardboard dome. Slightly zigzagging strips along the perimeter are stiffened by crosses, that are sandwich elements with polystyrene in the middle. Alternitively (more costly) honeycomb plates could be used. Incisions are made to connect the strips and the crosses. Eventually, some lower elements are removed to create an entrance.
