WHAT IS A
DOME
HOMES?




A dome home is exactly what it sounds like. Itís a house that is in the
shape of a geodesic dome! Itís made to be a circular (or elliptical)
shape. Aside from that, it has all the same gear as a regular home,
including doors, windows, and roofing.

THE CONCEPTS BEHIND THE GEODESIC DOME

One of the ways Buckminster Fuller ("Bucky") would describe the differences
in strength between a rectangle and a triangle would be to apply pressure to
both structures. The rectangle would fold up and be unstable but the triangle
withstands the pressure and is much more rigid--in fact the triangle is twice
as strong.

This principle directed his studies toward creating a new architectural design,
the geodesic dome, based also upon his idea of "doing more with less." Fuller
discovered that if a spherical structure was created from triangles, it would
have unparalleled strength.

TYPES OF
GEODESIC
DOMES




Geodesic domes are based on regular polyhedrons, or shapes like triangles
or pentagons, and are made into a dome from multiples of that base shape.
The domes are used in commercial building projects and occasionally in
residential construction. The design makes for a spacious interior, and
the dome is suitable for a variety of climates.
