take this house for a spin

June 15, 2015 — 1 Comment

A spinning, earthquake and hurricane resistant, energy-efficient dome, with a Guggenheim-inspired spiral staircase is on the market in New Paltz –


If you’re not ready to buy it, you can rent it for the weekend. As the owners will tell you, spending time in the dome is liberating.

“People really do behave differently in the round space,” one of the owners says. “It’s just free. It’s free-flowing, free of walls, free of constraints. It’s a space, versus a room, versus a box. There’s no limitation.”

    Native people were the first to use round houses, but it was forgotten later on & straight lines were used which is non environmental. Although this house is using the circular form, but the way we cut & use trees are also non environmental. We should know how to use local materisls in order to preserve our environment.
