I have given much thought on how to explain my vision of this design, and I cannot think of the words, so you will just have to take a look.

So I have been expanding on my multifamily dome design idea. I went a bit bigger. Each unit now has its own 3 floor dome.

This started with the idea to make a building the shape of a flower and roots.

This is a rather larger Dome. I used the profile from a surplus air form from monolithic domes. The dome is 110 ft by 45ft. I split it in half and filled in an area between them to extend the length by 40 meters.

With my 8th version of a multifamily dome, I have stuck with the 40meter dome with 3 floors. This time the dome is broken up into 6 slices each with a 2 floor extension.

Just some fun with Fibonacci.

So around 2003 I was thinking how I could make my multifamily dome community safer, while minimizing the amount of pavement for the development.

My solution was a development that only had one way roads. All intersections were roundabouts with clear view of any oncoming traffic.

Layout of 8 separate housing areas from 3rd Floor for Dome GallaghersArt_40m_Circle_01sm.jpg - Layout of 8 separate housing areas with just over 3,000sq feet of space each. If needed they could be split in half for single room apartments. (single room floor layout shown). Center area could be open to air, and used as a community space. All uti

So after more research and some specs from Monolithic Domes I made some changes. First off this height of the dome would have a 34ft or more center height. This means I can get 3 floors within each resident area.

Just after art collage I found some information about people building Monolithic Domes.

Basically they would blow up a balloon that is the full size of the house. Add some spray on foam and short create with rebar, and just like that house done. Well still needs the interior comforts, but a structure build to last, and through anything.
