Tahoe Dome

Tahoe Dome

Lake Tahoe

December 28, 2003

Stayed in a Geodesic Dome during Christmas 2003 while reading Stewart Brand's How Buildings Learn where he condemns the form he previously promoted as folly: Worst of all, domes couldn't grow or adapt. This one did, with the extension on the left as unheated rooms. It didn't leak or become empty as most have -- and as with most art as architecture it may simply be a nice place to visit, but not the greatest to live.
