This is probably the only spot in Alberta where a person could view not one but TWO domes in an urban residential backyard. Renovations to the People’s Choice winner (model GS4) at the GrowCalgary Microhome competition are in progress. It's just been insulated and interior finishes are being put it. While it is a collapsable model it can also be reconstructed to be 'winter friendly'. No mean feat by any builders standards. And the hammock will be set up not just to enjoy but as a test to the strength of geodesic domes.
The GeoStudio Deluxe (model GS1) with interior decor to 40 triangles will be on display to demonstrate what one could do with that backyard getaway. As with both domes, they are a demonstration of how pushing the envelope of design and innovation are important ingredients to creating sustainable living spaces.
So be there anytime between 7 and 10pm. We’ll have a backyard campfire if the wind isn’t too crazy and a drumming circle in the Deluxe dome for those who want to feel the vibe. Last but not least - and to meet your need for networking - there’ll be a space in the garage where you could enjoy some Christmas cheer. And yes feel free to bring your own, you might want to stay well past 10 :)
Here is the map.
