Bioceramic Dome, A Futuristic Way To Live

Bioceramic domes combine geodesic geometry with ceramic crystal chemistry to support the natural processes of restoration. The unique combination of geodesic geometry and ceramic crystal chemistry allows for affordability, resilience, and healing. A bioceramic dome can be anything from a tiny home in the backyard to a wellness retreat center. It can even be the center of a regenerative village. For more information, visit Zomes.com.

Zomes designs and manufactures regenerative bioceramic domes

Using the principles of geometry, Zomes designs and manufactures geodesic domes. They are fire-proof, hurricane-proof, and earthquake-resistant. The bioceramics used in their construction are recyclable and paramagnetic, so they attract and compress charges. This results in a centripetal electric field, which resonates with biology.

Compared to traditional building materials, bioceramic is the only material that mimics the chemical makeup of shells and bone. This material is rapidly curable and has the potential to revolutionize the orthopedic industry. Ancient civilizations also used similar ceramic materials to construct their temples. Bioceramic domes have unique properties that mimic natural conditions and electromagnetic fields like vortex water and natural spectrum light. They reflect up to 80% of radiant heat and emit high levels of far-infrared light that catalyze the healing process.

They are cheaper and more robust than concrete

The most apparent advantage of bioceramic domes is the lack of cost and weight. These buildings can be produced more inexpensively and are more robust than concrete. The material is biodegradable, which means it is safer for the environment than conventional concrete. It also provides excellent heat reflectivity, with 80% of the solar energy reflected. Bioceramic domes are also more fire-resistant, with a low percent porosity.

Zomes is building a permanent homeless community in Las Vegas with the help of Zappos. They’re doing the housing modules, which cost between $45,000 and $230,000. On-site assembly means the building will be built in a few days instead of taking months or years to complete. And since these structures are made from waste materials, the cost of labor is significantly lower. They’re also environmentally friendly, using only about half the concrete that traditional houses use.

They are fire-resistant

The advantages of bioceramic domes are numerous, from their lightweight construction to the high-quality ceramic materials that make them fire-resistant. Because bioceramic domes are monolithic, the panels are not connected by momentary connections, allowing them to resist high winds without buckling or cracking. Furthermore, bioceramic domes have low aerodynamic drag coefficients, allowing them to withstand strong winds without destabilizing. These domes are also insect and mold-resistant.

Conventional buildings and homes contain potentially harmful substances. The Toxic Substances Control Act was recently updated, but there is little regulation for building materials. According to the Living Futures Institute, which has published a “red list” of potentially toxic materials, bioceramic domes do not contain any of these substances. Moreover, bioceramic domes are environmentally friendly, as they meet all the required safety standards for green building.

They are environmentally friendly

These eco-friendly, low-cost homes are not only attractive but also highly sustainable. Because bioceramics can absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, they can be considered carbon harmful. Zomes is currently building a homeless village around its headquarters in Las Vegas. The company estimates the cost of a geodesic dome at $45,000 to $230,000, with on-site assembly. That works out to $130 to $160 per square foot.

Compared to a conventional rectangular home, bioceramic domes require minimal maintenance. Unfortunately, ancestral houses use materials with potentially toxic properties. In 2017, the Toxic Substances Control Act was revised after 40 years of no revision. However, despite these recent changes, building materials remain virtually unregulated in the US. As a result, the living futures institute published a “red list” of potentially toxic materials for home construction. Bioceramic domes don’t contain any harmful materials, making them ideal green building solutions.

They can be repaired and resurfaced with GeoRok

Bioceramics can withstand fires and submersion very well. This highly crystalline material only absorbs two to three percent of the structure’s weight. On the other hand, traditional houses must be completely dismantled and disposed of after fire. These homes also become infested with mold and mildew, and the building will be rendered uninhabitable in one week. On the other hand, a bioceramic dome would quickly dry and retain strength.

Installing bioceramic domes is easy. GeoRok is made of a unique blend of ceramic materials that bind to itself like waterproof glue. Installation is fast and efficient and requires no special tools, and parts weigh less than thirty pounds each. You can install your bioceramic studio dome yourself within two to six days. You can even wear augmented reality glasses to visualize how the parts fit together, and you can ask the helper to help you with any questions.
