Geodesic dome?


Okay, so I am thinking of building a geodesic dome or spider-web dome for my kid in the backyard. I tend to go a little overboard in building projects. I found some plans to build one out of pvc, but I want to make it out of steel. Anybody know where to find plans, or formulas for lengths etc?
