“Eco-friendly, sustainable, and ‘green’ are synonymous with geodesic domes.”

Timberline Manufacturing, California, www.domehome.com

“A sphere represents the smallest amount of material surface area needed to enclose a given volume of space. A divided sphere becomes one of the most efficient shapes known to enclose a given floor area.”

Pacific Domes, Oregon, www.pacificdomes.com

“We combine the sacred geometry of R. Buckminster Fuller with our progressively designed covers to bring you this futuristic, Zen structure.”

Natural Spaces Domes, Minnesota, www.naturalspacesdomes.com

“Uniquely designed for extremely high winds and earthquakes. Our domes have gone through tornadoes, hurricanes (including Katrina), and earthquakes (the 7.5 earthquake in Chile) with minimal surface damage and no structural damage.”

New Age Dome Construction, Alabama, www.newagedomeconstruction.com

“Domes just make sense in today’s world of ever more violent weather and increasing utility costs.”

GoodKarmaDomes, Oklahoma, www.goodkarmadomes.com

“We concentrate our efforts on having the most affordable, labor friendly, structural, headache free dome kits available — the way Bucky [Buckminster Fuller] wanted it!”

Terra-Dome, Missouri, www.terra-dome.com

“Go down under to stay on top.”
