This Eco-Friendly Bioceramic Geodesic Dome Could Revolutionize Homebuilding

This Eco-Friendly Bioceramic Geodesic Dome Could Revolutionize Homebuilding

This is Geoship, an eco-friendly, carbon-neutral, and modular dome-shaped home that is built to last 500 years and it won’t rot, rust or burn. Created by California-based Geoship, the bioceramic and geodesic dome is inspired by Buckminster Fuller, an architect known for his geodesic dome, and Rustum Roy, an esteemed physicist, and professor who was a leader in materials research.

Part of Geoship’s mission is to connect people with nature. This innovative home is bioceramic, which is a “chemically-bonded ceramic that forms strong molecular bonds like a polymer.” Similar to cement in the sense that it molds without the need for high heat, this makes it more cost-effective and easy to manufacture. Plus, it’s actually stronger than concrete.



Geoship has a plan to make “homes for the dome-less.”  According to the company, it’s partnering with Zappos, City Repair Project, Buckminster Fuller Institute, among others “to build the world’s first permanent geodesic village – a gift to the Las Vegas homeless community.”
