Matriarchal Style Report: Female-Led Architectural Design
There is very little new about domed designs for living spaces. (igloos, etc) but modern approaches have proven highly efficient on so many levels, applying new materials and technology to time-tested philosophies. No, I don't work for the company DomeSpace in any way, but I applaud their efforts to popularize beautiful 'free-feeling' domed houses around the world. These are real homes, available now. It is not only about energy efficiency; it is about the pysche of living within a space without hard edges. A space wherein you can really live.
I love their work, and you may notice much of the architecture in my own Future Femdom city in Second Life adheres to certain design cultures you won't find in a 'mans' world of squares, sharp corners and impossible towers! (I do consider patriarchal design a form of 'manspeak'....shall I call it 'mandesign'?)
Matriarchy is a subtle shift, naturally destined, that exists more and more in every aspect of life. Look around: you may even see it in the buildings nearby!
