The geodesic form of the dome allows for the most robust design possible to withstand the heaviest wind or lying snow conditions. Regardless of Sun's orientation, light is transmissed directly at right angles at any time of the day and season of the year. Excellent air flow is maintaned even in warm, still weather conditions. The heat inside is distributed evenly at all points Superior to conventional shaped rooms in sustaining better airflow and a uniform temperature inside.
