A Geodesic Dome Home For Sale
A geodesic dome home is a structure built in a spherical shape to reflect geodesic polyhedrons. These structures became prominent in the 1950s as an answer to the housing crisis that developed after WWII. While, over the following years, they declined in popularity, geodesic dome homes continue to fascinate architects today. Their benefits include:
Energy efficiency – Without walls, air can freely circulate throughout the structure.
Resilience – A lower surface area means less exposure to weather and natural elements.
Wind resistance – The curved exterior directs wind around the structure.
