The pyramidal structure has been tested in wind tunnel demonstrating a significant advantage over any other structure. The only exception has been the dome since a hemisphere or dome ideally has the same advantages. But in practice, when making a house or a shelter, the pyramid has smooth faces, while the domes have a circular arc, which makes it difficult to get materials whose surface fits without gaps where the wind can “hook.” So most capsules or domes, actually have a series of drawbacks, while the pyramid resists more both in structure and in its parts. The pyramidal architecture has been in the remote past, as much as now, the ultimate paradigm of polyvalent architecture.
The Pyramidhouse has a series of advantages that no other construction can offer.
PYRAMIDAL EFFECT: Nothing rots inside, is bacteriostatic, sedative, relaxing, antioxidant, antirheumatic, etc. (See Benefits). But this implies several more things that can only be appreciated through experience. Anyway, a good theoretical knowledge in this regard is essential for the engineer or architect, because it will allow to design better pyramidal buildings, safer, more functional and make sure that they will work in their aspect of “pyramidal device.” The best engineers and architects are not “the most creative,” but those who add creativity and aesthetics to the responsibility and accuracy of their designs.
As for the pyramidal effect, they must take special care to be well informed on the subject, because problems have occurred with poorly constructed pyramids due to lack of knowledge, which in some cases has forced the owners to leave the house. No serious damage has been reported, but the inconvenience caused by inadequate materials, ignorance of the effects and how the pyramids should be used, has represented an economic loss for the people, a discredit for the construction professionals and an indirect damage to the pyramidology.
