Dome homes

Like other big-thinking ideas, geodesic domes were proposed as the solution to many problems like the post-world-war housing shortage.


They reached the height of their popularity in the late 1960s and early 70s.


Gainesville has several, the most famous of which is the Foam Dome Home (aka Igloo, Hobbit Home, Flintstone House). This one is especially nice.


Buckminster Fuller built a whole dome set in Deland to house his laboratory.


Where else have you seen them in Northern Florida?
