Abstract:

R. Buckminster Fuller's American Pavilion at Expo 67 has long been recognized as an icon of Montreal's urban landscape. Yet this high point was only a part of the story of Canada's contributions to developing the geodesic dome. Based on previously unpublished archival material, 'Montreal's geodesic dreams' sheds light on the pioneering explorations of designer Jeffrey Lindsay (1924-84) and the Fuller Research Foundation Canadian Division (1949-56). This ebullient period of collaborative creativity and technological optimism placed Montreal at the forefront of dome experimentation in the 1950s - a moment when geodesic domes seized the architectural and popular imagination and sprouted up across the country in virtually every conceivable program and context. Illustrated with photographs, drawings, documents, drawing instruments and design tools from the Jeffrey Lindsay Foundation of the University of Calgary's Canadian Architectural Archives and various other archives and collections.
