The following architectual drawings provide various perspectives of the first ETFE Biodome, which is to be called the MicroDome. It is intended to be sold to small and aspiring commercial growers. Its key benefit is to provide a climate-controlled environment which enables stable year-round crop production through the use of pneumatic ETFE pillows. Its small carbon footprint, when combined with the Vertical Growing Cabinet, will provide a cost-effective growing solution.
