ArmanKala Ø60m Sphere - Fly city of dreams
“I have known Andreas (Project Author) for many years as a pioneer with a meticulously professional approach that turns ideas into reality. So the feasibility of ArmanKala is not an issue. I can hardly wait to see who will be first to realise the potential of this unique and compelling project.”
The ambitious and widely advanced project ArmanKala will not touch the stars, but reaching for the moon is a big challenge, too.

ArmanKala is not the extrapolation of an already existing attraction. It is the symbol of an agile – movable and simultaneously secure – solid, novel conception, which bursts all previous scales regarding height and minimum use of material and energy. ArmanKala brings together breakeven performance with poetical charm. Expressing structurally engineered and entrepreneurial spiritedness, ArmanKala represents an ambitious, national identity – comparable with the Eiffel Tower 121 years ago.
The essential elements of ArmanKala are patented, extensive engineering simulations are available, the aerodynamics of the gondola were tested in a wind tunnel, the performance of the key components has been verified and optimized in a 1:10 scaled model; key suppliers have been selected.
An aerostatic platform filled with helium is attached with three cables made of high-strength synthetic fibres. By this construction the platform follows the wind at the height of 1’500m like a ship lying at anchor. The lifting body with a volume of 100’000m3 is a perfect shaped sphere with a diameter of 60m. The illuminated surface is visible within a radius of 12km around the ground station as huge and bright as the moon.
Designed as an aerial cableway two aerodynamic formed gondola with a stabilising tail fin carry the visitors with 50km/h to the “lunar“ viewing platform, which is at a height 5 times the size of the Eiffel Tower. Arriving at the top the daily 2’500 visitors await a gently shaking partially glazed platform with a breathtaking panoramic view at the “South Pole” of the moon. Who ever wants to fly a higher game, is taken by a lift to the open “North Pole” on the top of the sphere, where the unforgettable impress-sions can be readily digested at a bar.
The counterpart of the moon – the ground or mooring station – is a circular building with a diameter of 120m, which is hemispherically covered with diaphragm like elements. Following the wind, they always keep an open path for the connecting ropes; thus the colossal-filigree building appears like the moving eye of a chameleon. For maintenance or during a storm the elements of the hemisphere can be opened in a way to enclose and secure the whole lifting body. The access and exit for the visi-tors takes place through submerged, transparent tubes. As a contrast to the attract-tion, the huge aquarium appears as a counterweight and a pivot bearing with mini-mized friction.
Gas stations deserve more architectural merit than they receive because these projects are as unique as modern homes or a high-rise skyscraper. It is a facility that sells fuel and engine lubricants for motor vehicles. The most common fuels is gasoline
Enter the rapidly growing market of ecotourism, natural or glittering domes. With GEODOMAS, we can offer an unforgettable experience to all those romantics, urban refugees, comfort seekers, light riders and nature lovers who do not find what they are looking for.
The specificities of resort projects may give rise to certain issues and may require possible adjustments during the implementation process to take account of actual on-site conditions which cannot be foreseen.
The central building is a complex structure, which in one volume provides the opportunity for joint operation of all systems, all alternative energy sources. This can be the energy of wind, solar, thermal radiation, it is possible to use the energy of isotope sources. Those energy sources, which we have worked out, can be used in an optimal way.
You should see our conept art down below. A good design begins with a good design concept. We trying to solve a task and your concept will lead the way and give you direction for your design decisions.
We supply planning services, we prepare technical and work plans, we calculate loads. Planning of constructions that are dome-shaped or spherical or partly that form – in this example Customer Support Center for Apple Inc.
The Center for Young Children provides quality early childhood education for children. Our concept art can be seen here.
Turn-key construction of accommodation, office and other mobilization facilities. Closed area and 200-1000 person capacity made by Geodomas.
The use of an Ice Rink Dome Covers, allows many other events to take place, all without removing the ice. This allows for faster conversions and reduced costs associated with the arena conversions. Convert your arena today into a multi-functional surface for a variety of sports and special events.
When we do the entire planning of hotel concept works for you, we take on the responsibility for ensuring that your hotel or spa facility will be successful by creating the best possible basis for economic success.
For the military space forces. Every project we get more experienced. Durability hemisphere ensure uniform distribution of loads on all points of the surface .It works brilliantly n the compression and flexure .
Transparent domes, as a building element, or the whole building dome-shaped, with parts of the façade as parts of a sphere. Irregular-shaped or Free Form Building construction.
Because of their unique geometry, domes are quick to erect and they withstand high wind and snow loads. Broad range of size, design, colour and function. Geodesic geometry: Icosahedron, Octahedron, Tetrahedron. Arched or trapezoid domes, other types of construction
We can enclose any sport field up to 10000 square meters. In carrying out important projects we are working with engineers, architects of the highest class, that address complex design challenges.
Fulldome cinema has become increasingly popular in recent years because advances in projection technology and dome construction have made fulldome cinema more accessible to a broader range of applications.
Welcome to the world of unique one of a kind places perfectly integrated with nature offering best lifetime experiences. Geodomas Glamping presents to you selected glamping retreats at its finest going beyond five stars, where the facilities in nature are thoughtfully designed in order to provide a sense of luxury and glamour with their uniqueness.
Geometric and geodesic structures. Facades and roofs. GEODOMAS specialise in planning and manufacturing geodesic domes and unique geometrical free-form constructions.
Our team was one of the first to present the idea of an autonomous city in March 2013, with a central dome in the middle, which symbolizes a Heavenly body, a highly technological one, that descended into the steppe of Kazakhstan. Our ideas became fundamental in the architecture and planning of the round city and its saturation.
Geodesic shelters have been called the most efficient structural design ever conceived because they “do more with less” — less materials and less waste. We produce the highest quality and top-level architectural projects for the commercial, housing, healthcare and education markets.
We prepare partial Work Plans for the façade, the system, the construction, approvals, and waterproofing and condensation solutions.
We manufacture and assemble various types of façades, roofs, structures, buildings and their elements, Cover For Madurodam Miniature Park in Holland is one of them.
A Geodesic Dome Roof for Round Ski Resort-Slope is a resort developed for skiing, snowboarding, and other winter sports.
Portable Domes> Their assembly and covering does not require much time, so we can handle various events, even huge ones. – Archaeological monument
We ship resort structures around the world for all kinds of purposes. we will ensure that it is designed, built and built to be environmentally and economically sustainable, secure and durable.

A sandwich panel is any structure made of three layers: a low-density core, and a thin skin-layer bonded to each side. Sandwich panels are used in applications where a combination of high structural rigidity and low weight is required.
Here is the Mas du Versadou, one of the most beautiful 18th century mas in the Camargue. It is located in a protected area, surrounded by rice fields and meadows for horses and bulls.
