Geodesic Domes

The American Institute of Architects awarded R. Buckminster Fuller a gold medal, acclaiming his invention, the geodesic dome, as “the strongest, lightest and most efficient means of enclosing space known to man”.

Pacific Domes are engineered for both internal and external weight loads. We offer an in-house structural analysis upon request. To be approved for permitting, your local building department may require engineering documents. Our architect and engineer can help you meet your requirements that exceed TUV engineering requirements for all European countries.

Geodesic Domes are the strongest structure known in the architectural world. Our domes are portable, quick and easy to assemble. They packed down into the smallest container and grow into the largest engineered structures.

There are two reasons domes are energy efficient. The ambient airflow inside the dome is continuous, with no stagnant corners, requiring less energy to circulate air and maintain even temperatures. The energy required to heat and cool a dome is approximately 30% less than a conventional building. The second is the high volume-to-surface-area ratio, requiring less building materials to enclose more space. The lower the ratio of a building’s outside perimeter to its enclosed living area, the less energy is required for building, heating and cooling.

The sphere has 25% less surface area per volume enclosed than any other shape. The dome combines the inherent stability of triangles with the advantageous volume-to-surface-area ratio of a sphere. The larger the dome, the more efficient it becomes. This is demonstrated by doubling the diameter, which encloses eight times the volume.

Living in a dome will generate a conscious field which supports the evolution of the soul. This ancient science is called Vaastu. Each dome has a different energetic quality. Click here for dome sizes.

“The structure of the Vaastu inspired dome vibrates with cosmic energy and the bodily instrument resonates with this vibration. To create and offer a home of supreme bliss, and to enable us to experience that supreme bliss, here in this mundane house itself, these are the prime motives of Vaastu science”. Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati

Geodesic Domes

Buckminster Fuller’s lifelong goal was the development of what he called “Comprehensive Anticipatory Design Science”– the attempt to anticipate and solve humanity’s major problems through the highest technology by providing “more and more life support for everybody, with less and less resources.” “Bucky” is best known for the invention of the geodesic dome–the lightest, strongest, and most cost-effective structure ever devised. The geodesic dome is able to cover more space without internal supports than any other enclosure. It becomes proportionally lighter and stronger the larger it is. The geodesic dome is a breakthrough in shelter, not only in cost-effectiveness, but in ease of construction and energy efficiency. The geometry allows proper circulation of the ambient air with little energy input.

Geodesic Domes: A Sacred Space

All of life is sacred.
All of life is geometric.
Thus geometry is the foundation of all of life.
Geometry is the universal language of creation.
It is the structure of the universe.
Pyramid means fire in the middle created by singularity.
The geodesic dome is a multidimensional pyramid.

R. Buckminster Fuller–inventor, architect, engineer, mathematician, poet and cosmologist was one of the most enlightened mystics of the last century. Fuller was truly a man ahead of his time.
