Geodesic domes are extremely efficient and inexpensive. Those traits,
when considered in the context of today’s economy and environmental
issues, mean domes are enjoying the kind of popularity not seen since
their heyday in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Many communities
throughout the world boast geodesic domes, either as homes or as
commercial structures creating everything from community gardens to
gaming fields and reception centres.
There are some inarguable points regarding geodesic domes. The first
is that they are eye-catching. Maybe because these shapes are so rare
in architecture, it’s hard not to let your eyes be drawn to these
Another concrete fact about the domes is that they come from geodesic
designs, which are based on a polyhedron. A polyhedron is a
three-dimensional solid that’s made up of many flat faces. Both
pyramids and prisms are examples of polyhedrons.
One of the most common polyhedrons used for geodesic dome designs is
called an icosahedron, which is a solid shape composed of 20 flat
faces. Each face is an identical equilateral (all sides are equal)
triangle. Rotate the edges of those triangles slowly toward an
imaginary center and eventually you wind up with a rough version of a
sphere, called a geodesic sphere. Cut that sphere in half and you have
an approximation of a geodesic dome.
And here’s a bit more basic geometry. You probably already know that a
line is the shortest distance between two points. The word geodesic
refers to the shortest distance between two points on a curved
surface, and it comes from a Latin word that means “earth dividing.”
But perhaps that is a little too involved for now so let’s get back to
the lighter side of being a dome owner .
Here’s the facts. Domes are three times more efficient than
traditional green houses! They reduce the environmental footprint while
providing the optimal environment for growing fresh,organic produce
throughout the year. Our domes require little or no reliance of
outside sources of energy so you can feed your family without
increasing your hydro or heating cost! Because your growing inside
the dome your gardens will require almost none of the maintenance
required in your traditional garden. No back breaking weeding or
tilling,imagine the extra time you will have to simply enjoy your
So to sum things up, the key features of your dome include :
Domes are so useful this is a difficult question to answer.There are three main qualities we like about the domes. The reason for this is that when combined these qualities make domes a fantastic environment for creating green space while requiring very little outside energies. Even in colder environments like Canada!
