Shell Structures Talk by Dante and Nic Bini


Video available


Dante Bini and his son Nic Bini talk about the inflated concrete dome Dante invented in 1964.


The Binishells are circular-based, monolithic, reinforced concrete thin-shell structures that are lifted and shaped by low air pressure. Used in a range of projects from affordable housing, schools and shopping centres, they became extremely popular for their quick construction time, low cost, high strength and reduced carbon footprint.
