I didn't actually cut out the small wedge in the patch diagram; I slit the wedge down the middle so that the two edges would overlap when the piece was wrapped around the (non-flat) hexagon at the center.

Doing so usually requires the construction of a supporting wooden structure, that holds the concrete in place while it hardens. Now, however, a team at the Vienna University of Technology has devised a system that allows concrete shell structures to simply be "inflated" and cinched together with a steel cable.
