The Monolithic Dome Tour is back! After two years of pandemic cancellations, we can finally open the Monolithic Dome campus for visitors again. Plus, we have a dome home in Utah to show as well.
Monolithic Dome Research Park
The Monolithic Dome Research Park in Italy, Texas, is hosting a dome tour on October 15, 2022. The tour is free and open to the public. The Research Park features over 75 domes of all shapes, sizes, and uses including a Texas landmark — Bruco: The Texas Italian Caterpillar.
Bruco is an Airform manufacturing plant in a Monolithic Dome shaped like a seven-humped caterpillar, 240 feet long by 60 feet wide. Inside there are two state-of-the-art RF welding machines plus an automated fabric cutting machine.
Behind Bruco is the Training Center, a four-dome design we call the Europa. There are the Monolithic offices in the center of the campus. Around all this are shops, offices, and storage buildings — most were constructed over the years by Monolithic Dome Builder Workshop attendees.
Adjacent to the Research Park are several private homes — all Monolithic Domes. Several homeowners have agreed to open their homes for the October tour.

Arcadia Dome Home
On the same day in Utah is an open house at Arcadia Dome Home in Providence, Utah. This beautiful home sits on a bluff overlooking Cache Valley — like a Swiss valley nestled in the northern Utah mountains.
The house is 3,200 square feet with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a great room, a loft with a balcony open to the great room, and more. It’s been almost three years since the last open house so it’s a rare opportunity to see this one-of-a-kind home.
