1. Buckminster Fuller, United States Pavilion, (1967)

    Probably the best known geodesic structure is the United States Pavilion in Montreal, Canada, designed for expo 1967. This 250 foot diameter, diaphanous, silvery sphere caught the imagination of all who visited the expo and became the symbolic icon of all subsequent world’s fairs and of visionary urban construction. Every expo after 1967 had it’s spherical exhibition structure; every city of the future had it’s spherical building prominently positioned in it’s urban fabric.
