Youth Detention Center — Some twenty-five years ago, Monolithic devoted a lot of time and money to jail and prison design. We knew that incarcerating facilities should be totally fire safe and impenetrable from both the outside and inside. Through research, we also learned that few jails and prisons are insulated. Apparently, insulation was skipped to cut costs — an unnecessary forfeiture in a Monolithic Dome where the opposite is true. Rather than increasing costs, a dome’s insulation holds utility costs to a minimum.
