Owl Dome was a minimalist habitat that merged the vernaculars of tepee and geodesic dome structures. The design of the dome simulated the type of nest that an owl might occupy within a tree trunk. At a height of sixteen feet, Owl Dome afforded protection from predators and served as an ideal hunting platform for its resident. Not unlike the tepee to which it alludes, the Owl Dome was designed for rapid installation and flexible placement.
