Pic of the Day: Montreal Biosphère

And it has a history. It was originally part of Expo 67 – designed by Cambridge7 and Buckminster Fuller.

Here is a great video about the idea behind the design.

Some reviews were a bit odd

The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung called the U.S. Pavilion a “masterpiece of intelligent wit and… self-irony.” “Alas, the exhibit inside the dome is… scandalous,” reported the Birmingham Sun-Bulletin; “It is vulgar, ostentatious and somehow suggests the false but blatant victory of the homosexual.”

Errr … the false but blatant victory of the homosexual? Not sure I get that one.

Enjoy!
