About Dome Architecture

Many people are discovering the unique Zen-like qualities inherent in dome architecture. The harmonic architecture of domes is based on the ancient science of Sacred Geometry.

Exploring the energetic qualities of domes enables one to recognize that each dome size produces a resonant field that’s unique to that structure. The resonant field of a 44-ft. dome home creates an environment that supports both inner and outer beauty. This frequency supports harmony and order on many levels – an all-encompassing relationship as one journeys through life.
