7. Dome Homes
The building pictured is a home you can actually buy! This house has been featured on multiple TV shows for its unique structure and design. There are a total of 10 domes sitting on more than three acres of property in the sunny Arizona desert.
Recently, companies have been constructing Dome Homes—a very specific style of home that requires inflatable airform, steel-reinforced concrete, and a polyurethane foam insulation. The Monolithic Dome Homes meet FEMA standards for providing near-absolute protection from tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and fires. The homes are cost-efficient, earth-friendly, and extremely durable. Oh, and they look super cool!
