“Movie based on the novel The House of Tomorrow by Peter Bognanni. This coming of age tale pairs a homeschooled boy raised on the wisdom of Buckminster Fuller and a recent heart transplant recipient. The release date for this movie is in 2018.” – August 31, 2017 Article By 

The film was shot at the 8 dome complex of Tessa Hill & Dennis Odin Johnson in North Branch, Minnesota.  Their company, Natural Spaces Domes, designs, manufactures and constructs geodesic domes, operating out of their North Branch facility.

The House of Tomorrow was filmed during July 2016 in various parts of 4 domes on the North Branch property along with other sites in and around Minneapolis and St. Paul.  The movie is based on a book of the same name by Peter Bognanni, published in 2010.

The House of Tomorrow stars Ellen Burstyn, Nick Offerman, Asa Butterfield, Alex Wolff, and Maude Apatow.
