“Bernard Judge, who created this domed house in the Hollywood Hills, was  a great admirer of Buckminster Fuller’s triangular forms,” Shulman  says. “This house looked ideal at night. It was like being inside a  giant soap bubble. It was beautiful, but it didn’t exercise any means of  controlling the heat coming through the top. So Judge tried to make a  layer of fabric over the top part of the dome, but that didn’t give  insulation throughout the rest of the house, so they added openings in  the glass.”
