It is an unparalleled honor to receive the Architizer A+ Popular Choice Award, earned through public voting after a three-week campaign, for its façade structure in Fernando Romero's Soumaya Museum. Geometrica received the good news on April 1, 2014. Thanks to all that voted for Geometrica and the Museo Soumaya!
A gridshell's organic shape and column-free space provide unlimited design freedom to architects and structural engineers. These innovative space-frame structures derive their strength from having double curvature in their overall shape.
Singapore is well known for its multicultural spirit and universal appeal to travelers--and great shopping. Mustafa Center, a multilevel shopping center, offers an intense, 24-hour-a-day shopping experience, with its myriad of interesting shops that attract more than 15,000 customers of many nationalities every weekend. Mustafa Center offers everything from fine fabrics to electronic devices to jewels. Its restaurants, too, offer a wide selection of cuisine. Crowning it all is a Geometrica dome.
Geometrica's environmentally-friendly bulk storage domes serve as ancillary port infrastructure at quayside import and export facilities. Loads include coal, urea, sulphur, pet coke, clinker, ore, bauxite or wood chips and more.
Paul Bourke shows beautiful geometry. We use many of these constructs in designing Geometrica structures.
When Minas de Aguas Tenidas, S.A.U. (MATSA), needed domes to cover their crushed ore stockpiles in Andalucía, Spain, they turned to Geometrica.
Combining Geometry and Art Dihedral Symmetry…Canonical Factor…Borromean Rings… Gyroid…Cubelets…Schwartz’ D Surface… sound like you are studying for a geometry class?
When Barrick's Zaldivar mine needed a 95m dome to cover its ore stockpile, it selected Geometrica for several reasons: First, it had considerable experience with these types of domes in Chile (Mantos Blancos, Escondida, Pucobre, and others). Second, the Geometrica offered a lower lifetime price than competitive structures. Third, the installation program was fast even while the stockpile remained in operation.
