Here at Chimni we are happy to admit that very little about this page makes sense. That is not to say it is not important. The characteristic of being round is not necessarily one that has had an important impact on the history of housing development. It is also a difficult category to break down into sub-groups although many of them do fall into the slightly broad category of Homes Of The Future and quite a few also appear in the Moving Or Floating Homes category. For our Wiki we have adopted that 'round' and 'circular' has the same meaning, while spherical should speak for itself.

A specific subset of 'round' houses, the Dome is surprising common for futuristic and concept housing shapes but actual residential domes are relatively unusual because of the cost and difficulty of construction.

Spherical Houses
