    nice interview with one my life’s heroes. i too was upset when kahn declared domes smart but not wise, but eventually grew up  enough to get his point. well, i thought i did …

    Another good book along these lines: “How Buildings Learn” by Stewart Brand. Brand had his own disenchantment with domes.

    I wish more kids were involved in building physical things at age 12 these days.

    My parents sent Kahn’s book “Shelter” to me for my birthday a few years ago.  They shipped it to my office, and the UPS guy brought the book to my cubicle.  Cubicle.

    CUBICLE.

    cubicle.

    But I can fix this.  And I am.

    Someone gave me a copy of shelter way back in 1996 and it changed my life forever.  I had already been into Mother Earth news for years but Shelter changed everything.

    I fell in love with domes at Burning Man, and I’m still convinced that for *that* environment, they make the most sense. But that environment isn’t supposed to make sense.

    For my scale model of the death star, nothing other than a geodesic dome will do. You want to live in something full time, that’s another story entirely.
