Geodesic Dome Features & Services

Design Advantages

Manufactured in the USA from high-strength galvanized steel, ecoliving geodesic-engineered domes are known for their portability and ease of set-up. Considered semi-permanent structures, they can be taken down or relocated at any time. That said, did you know that another cool thing about prefab dome kits is that they can be retrofitted to create permanent structures, as well?

Yet, another cool thing about domes is their energy-efficiency and ability to withstand nature’s extremes. Prefab geodome kits are the preferred choice when it comes to building in remote wilderness areas subject to high-winds, hot deserts or tropical climates – and, let’s not forget winter snow loads. Geodesic domes have proven to be the only structure left standing in the aftermath of a hurricane or earthquake.

Dome Life Design

Dome life design is conducive to an ecoliving lifestyle. Why is this? Because the harmonic architecture of domes is an ancient science based on Sacred Geometry.

Those who are familiar with the energetic qualities of domes understand that each dome size produces a resonant field that’s unique to each structure. The resonant field of a 20-ft. dome creates a structure that supports abundance and creativity – especially, when it comes to musical sounds and instruments.

Portable 20-ft. Event Domes

The first thing to know about Event Domes is the fact that people love that they can feel safe and secure knowing their event structure will hold up during unpredictable weather. These portable, tent-like structures lend themselves to a wide variety of functional uses for the event industry – as well as, for smaller gatherings like weddings.

Wedding Dome

Freestanding Event Dome frames support lighting, sound and projection equipment. Dome covers are customizable with your event branding. Pacific Domes invites you to browse their 20-ft. event dome brochure and event dome video gallery to learn more.
