My first foray into zome building was inspired by a picture of some crazy French builders standing atop a uniquely shaped house circa the 1970's found in the book Homework. The design of the structure I had never before seen and was instantly enamored with. Part desire, part challenge, I knew then I had to build one of my own. Slowly over the course of two years my dream materialized. In that time I thoroughly researched the geometry of the zome and its applications in building, reaching out to zome enthusiasts both across the country and across the Atlantic, to share my experience and learn from theirs. Two things stand out in my mind as I reflect on Zome 8, aka the Sonic Spaceship. The first being what I was able to construct using mostly all dumpster bound wood. Even though the end product is quite spacious, because of the component design of the zome I used only a few sticks over four feet long. In the end reclaimed lumber and leftover drops would account for about 80% of the building materials used. The next is the acoustic resonance that shape provides. I never really put any forethought into the specific sonic properties of the room but once the space was dried in, these interesting qualities began to reveal themselves. Intentional acoustic design using zome geometry is definitely a subject I will continue to revisit as I grow as a builder and artist. This version of Zome 8 is well suited for personal art/yoga studio, sacred/meditation space, recording room, treehouse, or sleeper cabin.
