A Cardboard Geodome Held in Equilibrium by its Own Waste
Steven Morgana's “How Much Does Your Building Weigh?” is a geodesic dome assembled from discarded cardboard boxes, held in equilibrium above the floor by the counterbalancing weight of the waste generated from its production. "The initial impetus for constructing the geodesic dome was little more than sheer curiosity." Morgana says, "Three-quarters of the way into the production of the dome, cutting isosceles and eqilateral triangles from found, recycled cardboard boxes — it became apparent the substantial amount of offcuts this generated. It was only then discovered that, connected to the by-products of its own production, the dome could be held in equilibrium by its own waste."
