The Geodesic Homes of Idaho Falls, Idaho

Travel, Design & ArchitectureJesse Walker18 Comments

Growing up in Idaho Falls, Idaho was strange enough but I always wondered what was up with this collection of futuristic hippy homes in my neighborhood above I.F. (called Rimrock Estates, in Ammon, ID). The place is overrun with starter castles today, yet these architectural anomalies built sometime in the early 80's, presumably by the same developer continue to amaze. I've actually been in two or three of them, this pyramid shaped one being the coolest. A nuclear family including two fraternal twin piano prodigies lived there. Fitting somehow.
