Architectural domes, space frames and freestyle structures are designed with form in mind. Form is the most basic of architectural features, set by structure and defining a building's character. True design freedom allows stunning facades (once thought impossible) to become award-winning realities.

More and more design professionals are discovering and specifying a structural system that provides exciting forms for landmark buildings and gridshells. This system, Geometrica®, is a true new medium for architectural expression and a platform for technology to meet elegance and modern design. Combine the concepts of freedom and domes, and you have the Freedome® -- Geometrica's breakthrough in design capability, remarkable spans and architectural daring. 

Beautiful Facades and Cladding

Sports facilities, exhibition centers, passenger terminals, malls, assembly areas, production facilities and many other buildings require distinctive structures to cover great spans with no intermediate supports. In these types of application Geometrica provides the most striking and cost effective solutions. Geometrica space frames, facades, vaults and free-style architectural domes are efficient and, most importantly, beautiful.

Geometrica structures are made with its versatile structural system of strong and corrosion resistant galvanized steel or aluminum and are finished with powder- or wet-coatings in custom colors. Cladding may consist of any roof and ceiling system in combination with translucent or transparent skylights. The light, prefabricated structures are containerized and shipped from our plant to anywhere in the world, where they are readily installed by local labor.
