GEODESIC SPHERE

Since 1975 my vision of a human habitat has the form of a geodesic sphere. A human habitat that is mass producible yet fully customizable during its initial manufacture, it can be infinitely altered and accessorized after its on site installation, it is self contained, doesn’t require a foundation and can be moved whole or disassembled to a different location. A human habitat that is suited to be placed on land, water and in space and will excel in an earthquake and a flood prone geography, remote or difficult to access locations, harsh environments and extreme climates.
The
current design/prototype of a human habitat in the form of a geodesic sphere is based on the concept of the sphere of OZ and it is executed in a fashion that is fundamental, obvious and aimed at the absolute. It has all the essential components and as a whole it clearly demonstrates the extent and the potential of the concept. A human habitat where every part has a purpose and is aesthetically contributing. A human habitat that is conceived and designed to forever evolve with and adapt to its inhabitants, technological progress, environmental and climate changes.
It is alive.
