I understand that you are talking about a dome of square plan. If that is correct, this can be created as a parametric family with the generic model adaptive template, using 2 reference lines and 1 reference spline. The central point is lifted to be hosted by a reference plane, which controls the height of the apex point.

Well, that is similar. It can be done with the same methods. Start with the generic adaptive template, make a projection in plan view. The straight edges are reference lines, and the curved edges are Splines. Then go to a front elevation and create reference planes to control the heights. Then lift points to their correspondent height. Finally, load into project, an convert faces to walls. I suggest you to watch these videos to get an introduction to modeling objects with the generic adaptive template:

This could also be done without conceptual modeling tools.  The form is reqally just a solid cube with 2 void barrel valuts cutting it at 90 deg.  Then the cneter is hollowed by creating a void hemisphere.  The interior corner conditions might need some additional work depending on the exact condition and modeling needs.  This should get pretty close.

Below is an image showing all of the forms that are used to create the final square dome.

 

The light blue is the solid cube I started with.  The 2 orange forms that are at right angles to each other are voids in the shape of a vault.  They are used to "cut" material away from the cube leaving the square dome shape on the exterior.  You can see the void hemisphere I placed and used to "cut" interior space out.

Or a solid by sweep. The section of the dome is the profile, and the square at the base is the path:
