A 3D PRINTED HOME INSPIRED BY GEOLOGICAL FORMS FOUND IN NATURE
Inspired by geological formations found in nature, the Geod[H]ome is a dome shaped concrete shell with an inner C-Fab cavity for dwelling. Like a broken geode, the outer shell opens to reveal gem-like formations within.
Inside the home, a continuous C-Fab network grows to sculpt the living space. Emerging like crystals, elements peel up from the floor, down from the ceiling, and out from the walls to house the functions of the home.
Where the shell has been removed, the C-Fab remains with an operable glass membrane to allow the house to breathe, letting in both light and air.
