Freedome® is Geometrica's trademark for free-style domes. These domes provide all the advantages of circular domes, but with a non-circular plan.
When you live on an island, blue skies and sunshine are a normal and natural part of your life. So when architect René Acosta Jr. was appointed to create the new Children’s Museum building in Carolina, Puerto Rico, he chose to make natural light and an ever-present view of the sky the signature for his breathtaking design.
Domes are surfaces that curve in two directions. The most common domes spring from a circular base and for that we call them "circular domes" at Geometrica, even if their cross-section is not circular. So the term "circular dome" differentiates domes on a circular base from Freedomes® that spring from bases of other shapes.
