My father, David B. South, invented the Monolithic Dome building process along with his brothers, Barry and Randy. When I was an eighth grader, my parents built our first dome house, Cliffdome, on a 50-foot bluff overlooking the Snake River in Menan, Idaho.

I thought our Monolithic Dome home was beautiful and I felt very safe and secure--the harsh Idaho winters were no threat and our house remained cool during the heat of the summer without air-conditioning.

To illustrate my point about domes being beautiful, I am sharing more beautiful/artistic photos of domes from The Monolithic Dome Institute's photo archives.
