Fire Village

The fire village was built one dome at a time by various workshop groups over a three year period. Many of the domes in this village include some of the first ever rocket mass heaters built at CalEarth (some work better than others!) as part of our ongoing research to integrate sustainable systems into this architecture. There is also a sweat lodge design, a shower dome design, and other concepts being tested out for temporary/semi-permanent community living spaces. The goal is functionality and to allow different spaces for private use and community use that can all be built very quickly by the individuals who will be living there. 

In our "Core A" Dome Building and Core Curriululm 4 day workshops students learn to build these small shelters.
