A Space Chain is a space-frame structure made with circles. Friedman applied this idea first in his project for the medina of Tunis in 1959.

A space-frame structure made with circles has the advantage that the pattern can be changed at any given moment. The circle can be used as the face of a cube or a tetrahedron. The spheres can be connected by using circle on circle as a point of connection, becoming irregular polyhedrons. This allows for building all sorts of shapes and is easy to work with.

A Space Chain structure is easy to build with as long as the material can be bend rather easily and is rigid enough to keep its shape.
Here a group of people in Terrasson constructed a Space Chain dome.
