Domes + Architecture

Domes have been a part of architecture throughout our history. Domes have been constructed out of various materials around the world for centuries - animal bones, hay, clay, bricks, metal and now concrete. You can see the influence of domes in on a grand scale in these famous architectural feats like the Taj Mahal and the US Capitol.

The dome has also served in architecture for individual homes and community buildings, stretching back for centuries. These domes have provided shelter to different cultures. The igloo is commonly considered one of the older examples. These Zulu Huts are another example of dome homes.

Now, we at HDomes are building modern domes using airform, basalt, and shotcrete. This type of dome was pioneered by the three South brothers who founded Monolithic Domes. These domes share the same amazing features that have made dome homes appealing to cultures around the world.  Dome homes and buildings are eco-friendly by using less materials and being naturally insulated.  Domes are also incredibly structurally sound and will last for decades, withstanding natural disasters such as earthquakes, fires and hurricanes.
