Sound like fun. You could have picked an easier first object though. ;)

For those who don't know:

pendentive
In architecture, a triangular segment of a spherical surface that forms the transition between the circular plan of a dome and the polygonal plan of its supporting structure.

Without doing a crazy amount of "worktime" research ... I can only confirm that Boston has 1 set of 4 pendentives. I am sure there are many more ... but I only know of one at the moment.

Almost every Orthodox church in the city is built that way
