Strength testing the Monolithic Dome at BYU Laboratories. The sand bags represent the amount of weight previously thought to be the maximum load this dome could take.

As opposed to yurts, these dome homes are super-insulated, steel reinforced concrete structures. They do share a similar shape to yurts but these buildings can be used as homes, schools, gymnasiums, or storage facilities. The home living plans are unique and we'd be curious to hear from someone who has lived in one.
