    I would certainly be very interested in one, almost identical to the design of my choice and one proven over many centuries to withstand weather and remain habitable. Would be interested in learning more, and in which countries they are available.

    Seen a number of these concept construction buildings, including on this site. Don’t know of *any* that have actually got off the ground. Not sure I’d live in a cave like construction out of materials that may, or may not, have longevity. I’d like it to last for 50 years minimum, so I could live out my life in it as a forever home. Looking forward to reaching 115 years of age. rotflmao.

      Binishells were actually invented back in the 60’s by Dr. Dante Bini who actually built 1,600 of them in 23 countries… This goes with other cement dome like structures that have popped up over the years with some variations like using a insulation foam shell to spray the concrete on, among other variations of the idea…

      This version is a reboot by Bini’s son Nicoló Bini, who has updated it to modern building codes, more flexible construction, and takes advantage of new building technology like the new passive heating/cooling technology with heat pumps, etc…

      It’s one of those ideas that have promise but hard to get wide adoption even with successful trials but with costs starting as low as $3500, they keep on trying…
