You can find geodesic domes in the hills of Glassell Park and along Colorado Boulevard in Eagle Rock. Now, you can build – and eat - a tiny dome of your own at home. Echo Park designers Ben Luddy and Makoto Mizutani have created a gingerbread version of the dome popularized by R. Buckminster Fuller, according to the L.A. at Home blog. Luddy and Miztuani are selling a $25 kit that includes a laser-cut template to build a six-inch tall dome and recipes for gingerbread and icing to cover the shell. There’s also the handy video above to show how its done.
Perhaps now someone can come up with a Craftsman fruit cake mold.
