Shelter in Dome

Personal Analog Mission

ISTIO-Dome Logo

The ISTIO-Dome is a geodesic dome habitat structure engineered using up-cycled sail materials. Designed for use as an experimental laboratory, ISTIO-Dome provides 300 ft² of workshop space, and serves as an exploration in re-claimed materials. The project is inspired by Buckminister Fuller’s Dymaxion world view and his work on geodesic domes. Facilities include 360 degree multimedia and astronomy projectors for educational and entertainment opportunities, solar powered energy systems, and a warp drive!
