Politicians who live in glass houses, etc. ... The Canadian House of Commons is in need of repair, and while it's being done, a dome
will cover the elected gabbers. It might cost as "little" as $42 million or as much as $1 billion. The pre-construction vacuuming
has already begun.

Giant Concrete Caterpillar.
Driving on I35 south out of Dallas to Austin, you pass through Italy, Texas, and on the side of the road is Bruco
, the Texas Italian Caterpillar, and the home of the Monolithic Dome Institute
, makers of fine homes
, and churches
. These domes
and disaster resistant
. (See previous thread
). They also can be visually interesting
. These domes are concrete as opposed
to R. Buckminster Fuller
's Geodesic domes
, such as Epcot Center
or the incredibly interesting Eden Project

Cardboard Geodesic Dome.
A how-to on building a geodesic dome out of cardboard, a bit of wood, some duct tape and paint. Plus some rebar if you don't want the finished dome to fly like a kite. If you like the concept but not the size calculate
your own then apply the concept.
