Our recent efforts will be focused on training local building contractors to assemble Hypershelters.
There will be a free hands-on demonstration, where participants will be able to assemble materials into the a-planar panels, erect them into place, and connect them into the whole structure..
A date and time for the first of these demonstrations will soon be posted here

Anytime one puts up a new structure, a fair amount of thought goes in beforehand:
What is the main purpose of my building, and what are my available materials?
What is the terrain like on my building site? Where is the sun going to be at noon, and which way is the front?
Once you are satisfied with your positioning, it will be easy to fit a Hypershelter on your location.
It can accommodate doors on any of its four triangular openings. You will note that these openings, being triangular, need no further support members interfering with your choice of doors and windows. One side can be entirely window, or entirely door without affecting the structural integrity of the building itself.
Also, these openings are a result of the continuous curvature of the roof, and flow right out of it without the need to construct the many facets of dormers, as is necessary with other building designs.
So, now you have the roof, with openings smoothly built into it, and space contained within. You may want to divide that space into rooms, add a second level for a loft, or simply leave it open for that expansive feeling of unobstructed internal space.
