Dome

Filed under: Uncategorized — sunglee91 @ 3:38 pm

In Japan, there are villages called the dome village where the houses are basically domes.

These types of houses are good for places like Japan where earthquakes are frequent. Also, this house is very light, and because of the material that it is made up of, it is good for people who are sensitive to chemicals.

As shown above, this is based off of the pantheon dome where there are openings everywhere, and it is very bright inside. It is obvious, but the dome has no corners, and that is one of the reasons why it is brighter than most houses. The lights are bound to cross within the house.

This house is a very cute, simple house that is very beneficial, but there is a downside to it; this home is not permanent. What I mean by this is that the material the house is made up of will not be very strong against UV rays, and other mother nature effects.
