If science fiction is any guide, we'll all live under domes one day. And some of these houses make that future look pretty damn good.
The Palais Bulles (Bubble House) in Tourettes-sur-Loup, France, designed by Antti Lovag, built between 1975 and 1989. Once it was the home of fashion designer Pierre Cardin.
Prefabricated Easy Dome houses, designed by Kari Thomsen and Ole Vanggaard. The first was built in 1992 for the Greenland Society of The Faroe Islands, but now they're available in various sizes.
