What's so great about a geodesic dome home?
A geodesic dome home is a unique type of structure that utilizes principles of geometry to create the appearance of a spherical home. By constructing the walls out of many smaller triangles, rather than traditional straight walls, a geodesic design ensures strength and stability despite its round shape. Dome homes have been used worldwide for centuries as homes and public buildings, focusing on creating curved spaces with maximum surface area to ensure strength, insulation and efficient use of space within. They are also unique in their construction process, where rather than building from the bottom up they often begin with a single frame that is then “fleshed out” from the inside outwards. This method creates an unusual balance between form and function that provides aesthetic appeal and practicality both in terms of weight management and climate control. Geodesic domes have begun to gain more attention recently because of their sustainability, cost-effectiveness and energy efficiency; whatever your purpose, it's hard to deny the innovative beauty of these remarkable structures.
