I love geodesic domes. I feel like they are the perfect design maximizing space and resilient through various types of weather. Domes also remind me of space dwellings. Which has been an inspiration for my dream of operating an adult edutainment space colony glamping center. Historically, Buckminster Fuller was the original pioneer of geodesic domes. His intended design purpose for geodesic domes was efficient housing for the masses. Overtime, domes have taken shape for other applications, including interactive event facilities!
2022 South by Southwest (SXSW) was the first time I attended this major local event. Even though I’m not comfortable in crowded events and festivals, SXSW had a pop-up event venue I was determined to see. Wisdome Immersive Music & Art Park. This exhibit was temporarily relocated from Los Angeles to Austin for SXSW. Wisdome offered 360 immersion, yoga and soundbath experiences, as well as live music concerts during SXSW!
As a kid, I would always travel by Bruco, the giant dome caterpillar, on our family trips to visit my grandparents before they lost their home to one of the Texas fires several years ago. So this was the first time I actually pulled off the highway and took a look at the actual domes and houses that made up this unique dome community!
