The Domes is a living-learning cooperative community of 26 students that encourages critical thought, communication and cooperation between individuals and the community, active maintenance of an open and inclusive space, and resistance to consumerism and structures of oppression. The residents of the Domes enact these values through unlearning oppressive behaviors, providing affordable, low-income housing, and taking personal responsibility for self-education and introspection. The innovative and curious structures were proposed and installed by students in 1972 as an experiment in low-cost, ecologically-minded housing. In 2012, the Domes joined the Solar Community Housing Association, a 501(c)3 non-profit low-income housing cooperative, which is also a member of NASCO, the North American Students of Cooperation.
