It would stand out on a skyline, wouldn't it? That's about twice as tall as the tallest skyscrapers. But geodesic domes are inherently scalable, and a dome that size would be much more affordable (and constructible) than your typical skyscraper.
Oklahoma has been my home for 25 years, and I love it here. I want to help Oklahoma's economy grow in a way that isn't dependent on the price of crude. Full-scale domes won't work in Oklahoma (you need a desert and an ocean), but test models can be built here, and since domes are pre-fabricated, they can be made here and shipped anywhere.
These domes aren't very efficient at this size. In order to break even, a dome would need to serve at least a few thousand people. The best thing you can on a home-level is improve your energy efficiency. Weatherstripping won't impress the neighbors, but it's the best bang for your buck.
Thank you!!! The next step is to help me spread the word. Tell your friends about this project. 405dome.com is an easy-to-remember address that will automatically send people to this Kickstarter page. Share the project on social media. Bring it up the next time a friend says they're worried about global warming.
