Differing from its predecessor zome 8, zome 9 is less of a permanent shelter and more of a traveling sculpture. Built with portability in mind, this structure breaks down into fifty four separate diamonds, which easily fit onto a 5' x 7' trailer. It is made of reclaimed cedar, stands roughly 8' tall with a diameter of 10.5 feet. Its shape is a bit shorter and wider than that of zome 8 because its starting angle is roughly 35.25*, which corresponds to the silver ratio, or 1/(1 + sq. rt. of 2), giving zome 9 a subconsciously harmonious balance. This style of zome would be ideal for a gazebo, play structure, temple, or with the addition of a canvas covering, temporary shelter.
