Dan's dome homepage One of the tricky things is to get all the paperwork & contractors organized so things happen in the proper sequence. The easy (and more expensive) way to go about this is to simply hire a builder to take care of everything for you, or you can act as your own general contractor and hire all the workers yourself, or, if you're handy and have a LOT of free time, you can do all the work yourself. I opted to go the second route, and save only the dome construction and a few other easy tasks for myself.

Cynefin, testing & auditing Over the last few weeks following my CAST 2014 talk in New York, while the Stop 29119 campaign has been raging, I have been thinking more about some of the underlying issues. One of these has been the idea of “best practice”, which led me back to the Cynefin Framework. If you don’t know about Cynefin then I strongly recommend that you learn about it and reflect on its implications. The Wikipedia article is a good start, not least because Dave Snowden, Cynefin’s creator, keeps an eye on it.

Natural Pools or Swimming Ponds Natural Pools or Natural Swimming Ponds (NSPs) Let nature clean the water... Chemical-free water garden and swimming pool. The plant portion, or regeneration zone, is separated from the swimming area by the wall seen a few inches below the water’s surface. The pools have skimmers and pumps that circulate the water through the regeneration zone and back into the swimming area. The aquatic plants filter out contaminants and use nutrients from the water as food which helps prevent algae.

Homes When it comes to homes, Monolithic does not believe in one size or one style fits all. Your Monolithic Dome home can be everything you need and everything you want in the home of your dreams. It can be small and cozy or spacious and luxurious; one-storied or multistoried; at ground level, totally underground or earth-bermed; built in virtually any location and environment. The Monolithic Dome Institute [Image: The headquarters of Poland's Radio Muzyka Fakty Sp.z oo. As if stunned by their own work, the architects add: "This is a completed facility! This is NOT a drawing or a scene out of Star Wars." More on that project here]. Luis de Garrido Luis de Garrido Talavera (born 13 November 1967) is a Spanish architect. Luis de Garrido works with sustainable architecture in Spain. During recent years he has only accepted projects where very strict (chanta) ecological, health and environmental criteria are always respected. Biography[edit] Luis de Garrido studied architecture in the PUV Polytechnic University of Valencia where he graduated with a doctorate.

'Earthscraper' concept hides a 1,000-foot skyscraper underground The folks over at Mexican architecture group BNKR Arquitectura call this thing an "earthscraper," and the reason why should be obvious: it's a monstrous, beautiful, 65-story inverted skyscraper that hides a mini city underground. Designed to be built smack-dab in the center of Mexico City, BNKR's Earthscraper wouldn't ruin the skyline there (though, really, who would object to something that looks like this?) and is designed in such a way that it would incorporate Mexico's history in its design.

Horton Dome - Materials Foundation Our foundation was constructed with "Arxx High Performance Wall System" (formerly BlueMaxx) poured in place foam blocks. They were great for the 126 degree angled corners of the dome extensions. Floor Joists The support we chose for the main floor decking was the Silent Floor TJI joists . Splendid Monolithic dome home in Colorado up for grabs Dome’s your home. Perfections aren’t always straight, they could be curved as a dome. If thought baffles you, the picture above should clarify. The six-bedroom, two-bath, 5,600 sq. ft. monolithic dome home is situated on a bluff at 6,700 feet above sea level, in the heart of the Apishipa River Valley near Aguilar, Colorado.

Tensile structure Most tensile structures are supported by some form of compression or bending elements, such as masts (as in The O2, formerly the Millennium Dome), compression rings or beams. A tensile membrane structure is most often used as a roof, as they can economically and attractively span large distances. History[edit] This form of construction has only become more rigorously analyzed and widespread in large structures in the latter part of the twentieth century. Tensile structures have long been used in tents, where the guy ropes and tent poles provide pre-tension to the fabric and allow it to withstand loads. Russian engineer Vladimir Shukhov was one of the first to develop practical calculations of stresses and deformations of tensile structures, shells and membranes.
