    I thought Lloyd had rejected domes as homes? At a talk in Berkeley, I heard him say that he was still glad to have learned through them about the regular solids and related geometry. Are there other ways that such geometry can be used in building, rather than in domes?

  3. I briefly got to visit it winter of 73/74 I think it was. Lloyd was away, but I got to see inside. Wonderful experience.
