Houston, TX is prone to hurricanes, as well as a whole slew of other natural disasters. Vector Foil wants to help protect residents of the city from those disasters with their proposed ‘Houston Dome.’
The Vector Foil Houston Dome would be 21 million square feet if created, covering the major centre of the city. The proposed dome is made out of a polymer made by the company that is only one percent glass.
It is said the Houston Dome would be able to withstand up to category 5 hurricanes.
