The geodesic form of the dome allows for the most robust design possible to withstand the heaviest wind or lying snow conditions.  Regardless of Sun's orientation, light is transmissed directly at right angles at any time of the day and season of the year.   Excellent air flow is maintaned even in warm, still weather conditions. The heat inside is distributed evenly at all points  Superior to conventional shaped rooms in sustaining better airflow and a uniform temperature inside.

Mark Nystrom’s Wind Drawings Inspired by the simple sight of a leaf dancing across snow, American artist Mark Nystrom created his elegant Wind Drawings series in which a pen equipped with sails records one day’s wind conditions.

While some drawings show clear patterns – implying a strong wind from a…
