Artist's Description

The Biosphère of Environment Canada is a museum in Montreal dedicated to water and the environment. It is located at Parc Jean-Drapeau, on Île Sainte-Hélène in the former pavilion of the United States for the 1967 World Fair Expo 67 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The architect of the geodesic dome was Richard Buckminster Fuller. The building originally formed an enclosed structure of steel and acrylic cells, 76 metres (250 ft) in diameter and 62 metres (200 ft) high.

During structural renovations in May 1976, a fire burned away the building’s transparent acrylic bubble, but the steel lattice remained. The site remained closed until 1990.
