How to show a sphere made of segments curved in one axis only?

The attached graphic shows a portion of a spherical dome made of 19 plastic panels. But this is not accurate because the plastic panels are curved in the vertical direction but are flat in the lateral direction. How can I render this? Discretize function? Some use of the map projection tools?

Thank you!

It might help to recognize that the panels are segments of cylinders.
