Buckminster Fuller is credited with popularizing geodesic dome homes, though the design isn’t exactly found in every neighborhood in the U.S. Still, the structures captured the imagination of many and are still being produced. For example, Timothy Oulton recently built the Dome Home in a lychee garden in southern China. It’s like something right out of Epcot.
Made of 80 pre-fabricated timber panels that fit together, the self-supporting shell has no pillars. Its unique construction makes it energy-efficient, watertight, and well insulated. Custom furniture fits into the building’s curved walls, including the couch, chairs, and stainless-steel and marble kitchen. It’s pretty cool-looking; maybe someday soon we’ll be seeing more dome homes around.
