If you are wondering what this is, here is an interesting new use of one
of our domes. A doctor in Arizona plans for a "planetarium" on the inside
of the dome for astronomy studies. With the lights off, star patterns will
be projected on the inner dome surface. The dome will be hung from the
ceiling, so observers can study the heavens. A fun project!
2. We have started a "dome donation" program.
Only in the beginning stages of a not-for profit-organization designed
to help individuals or organizations with dome homes, greenhouses and low
cost emergency shelters. The first one goes to Children's
Homes, Inc. of Paragould and will be a 20 ft Garden Dome 3. We need
people, materials and people to help. The need is out there. We would like
to be able to send mini dome homes to the homeless all over the world.
Dear sir, Our company plans to donate a facility
for the rehabilitation of children that are affected by
the earthquake in Turkey. We are looking for a structure with
1000 square meter (or 2X 500 square
meter) living area that can be set up in a short time. Please
let us know if your temporary domes are
suitable for this purpose. If so let us know budgetary prices
and materials that need to be obtained
locally in Turkey. Hoping to hear a prompt answer.
Best Regards, Erdem Heral, Overseas Development
