“Domebook 2” is both an instructional manual for buildings and a record of experimental communities that formed in America during the sixties and seventies. Rather than continue with traditional architecture and design, these communities decided to explore the possibilities of unconventional geometric shapes, arches and unusually placed windows. The goal of the communities who built these new structures and wrote “Domebook 2” was simply to pursue what is beautiful and inventive and to create exclusively by hand. The resulting structures made within these parameters, are radically different from the traditional concepts of the American home, yet still speak loudly with the voice of the American spirit. The pages of “Domebook 2” are filled with diagrams, photographs, instructions and anecdotes of all sorts of geometric and architectural experiments - easily enough to inspire even the most staunch fan of squares and rectangles to dabble with domes.
Published in 1971. Due to the vintage nature of this book, signs of use and wear are to be expected.
