The Fly’s Eye Dome:

The Fly’s Eye Dome is a geodesic dome designed by American designer, inventor, and theorist R. Buckminster Fuller. The design, which Fuller began working on in 1966, features circular openings, called “oculi,” arranged in a pattern similar to the lenses of a fly’s eye1. These oculi allow light and air to enter without compromising the integrity of the structure. The dome was originally intended to provide economical, efficient housing. Prototypes of the dome were built in various sizes. Today, the Fly’s Eye Dome is seen as a forerunner of the green building movement.
