In the Costa Rican rainforest, at the base of the majestic Mount Arenal volcano, Dome Gaia will build a fifth Aircrete dome in collaboration with Brave Earth, a biodynamic farm, retreat center and community. 

Each workshop we evolve farther. With the skilled craftsmen at Brave Earth we've innovated doors and window, furniture and more. Join us and new friends from around the globe in Costa Rica!

Learn how to build a dome home with Aircrete: a masonry material that is easy to make yourself. This is a low-cost home that is waterproof, fireproof, termite-proof, rot-proof, insulated, eco-friendly, non-toxic, and durable against forces of earthquakes, floods, winds and fire.
