Global Dome Homes (Hajjar) www.globaldomehomes.com
Global Dome Homes is an organization devoted to revolutionizing the way we build. Inventor and natural builder Hajjar Gibran created and perfected the Global Dome Homes method of construction using his testing site at Miracle Springs in the jungle of northeastern Thailand. There he created picturesque and durable structures that have excited international attention. Operating under the belief that a safe and beautiful place to live is a basic human right, Global Dome Homes is making access to this essential need as widely available as possible in a way that doesn’t take a toll on our environment. Their path to doing this is through open sourced plans to allow others to construct their own homes using their intuitive, inexpensive, and eco-friendly design, while continuing to offer construction workshops as Hajjar has already done all over the world. The organization is also in the process of creating designs for implementation in disaster relief and disaster prone areas, as well as making their buildings available for social projects and eco-villages around the world. In the spirit of Hajjar’s famous ancestor Kahlil Gibran, Global Dome Homes seeks to offer one of the tools for a full and harmonious life for whoever wants to build a safe place for themselves and their families. As a One Community collaborator, Global Dome Homes will be helping One Community build and open source share comparing an aircrete dome to an earthbag dome as an alternative option for the complete Earthbag Village.
