Montreal Biosphere, Montreal

Montreal Biosphere

Not like the World's Fair to inspire odd architecture. This is the 1967 World's Fair in Montreal, in the end occurs when the architect Buckminster Fuller designed the dome of what. His structure filled from the tree at St. Helen's Island, 200 feet high, 250 feet in diameter.

This is a closed structure, in 1976, until a fire destroyed the outer layer. Today, with a thin shell structure and run by Environment Canada as a museum, interactive exhibits on biodiversity and climate change.
