The Monolithic Institute and Its Domes

The Monolithic Institute was founded by David B. South and his wife, Rebecca South, in 1986. It is based on a concept of constructing domes made from reinforced concrete and steel bars that are strong enough to withstand natural disasters such as hurricanes and tornadoes. The institute has since built hundreds of these domes around the world, including schools, churches, museums, and even homes! In fact, you can drop by the institute located in Italy, Texas and take a peek at their massive world map that shows every place they've built, and learn more about these incredible structures.
