In recent years we have often heard of environmental disasters that have hit our planet, events that are becoming increasingly frequent and disastrous. Architects have been trying for a long time to find functional solutions that address these types of problems without compromising the comfort and habitability of a home, even in terms of space.
The Seattle-based architecture firm Geoship has designed a valid and innovative design solution. It is a structure in the shape of a geodesic dome in bioceramic, an unusual material but useful to lower construction costs and absolutely resistant. They are energy-efficient, durable and resistant, and can be built quickly and economically. The answer came when the members of the company wondered why they were still building houses in wood or with “antiquated” technologies.
The firm only works on ecological projects, which would allow its users to have a home with little capital available or through mutual funds. Their aim is to help groups of people to activate land trusts to create domed “villages” and the possibility of becoming co-owner of the company. Users will be able to actively participate in the planning and define the modalities of cooperative co-ownership.
