What is a Zome?

A zome in the original sense is a building using unusual geometries (different from the standard house or other building which is essentially one or a series of rectangular boxes). The word zome was coined in 1968 by Steve Durkee, now known as Nooruddeen Durkee, combining the words dome and zonohedron.

What is the difference between Dome and Zome?

Zome est la contraction de ZOnaedre et de doME. Le Zome est une structure de type polyédrique avec une géométrie composée de losanges agencés en double spirale hélicoïdale dont la trame se retrouve dans les mondes minéral, végétal et animal.

How long does A zome last?

This isn’t a structure that will easily break nor will it require maintenance, it will endure continuous wear and tear for up to 500 years. Zomes are Hassle-free. No special tools required. No crane, heavy machinery, mixing, pouring, drilling, or gluing required during assembly.

What is a Zometool?

The word zome was coined in 1968 by Steve Durkee, now known as Nooruddeen Durkee, combining the words dome and zonohedron. One of the earliest models ended up as a large climbing structure at the Lama Foundation. In the second sense as a learning tool or toy, Zometool refers to a model-construction toy manufactured by Zometool, Inc.

What does Zome mean In geometry?

Zome as a geometry is not very well known and it can mean a series of things. The term Zome comes from zonohedron + dome, and was coined sometime in 1970 by Steve Durkee. A zonohedron is a form which can fill a given space seamless, the most popular zonohedron is the cube.

What are Zomes used for in real life?

Zomes have also been used in the artistic, sculptural, and furniture areas. Zomadic, based in San Francisco, CA and founded by Rob Bell, incorporates zome geometry into artistic structures constructed primarily from CNC machined plywood components.

What is the difference between a dome and A zome?

Both Dome and Zome are different geometries based on similar principles. Geodesic dome is probably the most common lightweight structures in the world. From a spatial perspective we feel the zome is much more efficient then a dome.

The Zome is made of bamboo strips that are coated with UV resistant coating and comes with galvanised bolts so it is fine for outdoor use as long as regular maintenance is carried out. What sort of maintenance is required for the Zome?
