Concrete Dome Construction

Do you want to be equipped to build dome-shaped structures that are affordable and can offer a long-term haven from storms, earthquakes, floods, and fires in the developing world? Join us for Equip’s Concrete Dome Construction course!


Thin shell concrete construction is an appropriate technology which is applicable to meet many needs worldwide. Domes purposes can range from rainwater catchment tanks and theft-secure granaries, to economical, permanent village homes, to churches and schools.

Our course offers hands-on training in site selection, design, and construction of a thin shell concrete dome. We will use the techniques and AirForm equipment developed by David South at the Monolithic Dome Institute. During our course, we will build a 14-foot-diameter concrete dome. Come prepared to get dirty, and leave with the knowledge and experience you'll need to help others build affordable dome structures in their community.
