Homes based on R Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic dome were sold by a number of kit house companies in the 1970s and quickly became popular for difficult or remote sites due to their fairly straight forward assembly and simple foundation requirements. For this reason, there are a number of geodesic dome houses sprinkled around the Bay Area, but few of them are as intriguing as the one we feature today in Lafayette. Not only is this particular example made up of multiple discrete domes, but it also is unusual for the fact that so much of the structure is exposed inside the house – a rare treat for fans of Bucky Fuller.
