Buckminster Fuller's Biosphère

Because I'm tired of seeing that Grizzly Bear review, here's a picture of the Biosphère in Montreal designed by Buckminster Fuller for Expo '67. Although it used to be covered with white panels, they were damaged in a fire and never replaced. Someone no doubt recognized that the armature is quite beautiful. Located on Sainte-Hélène Island just across the St Lawrence river from downtown, the trees were at their height of fall colors.

Montreal is a beautiful city. I'd love to get back there some day.

Couldn't agree with you more. I had a blast walking around and taking in the sights - and, yes, even seeing a few movies!

It's so weird that you were in New York and I almost went the day you were, and then, just 2 days ago, I took an impromptu trip to Montreal.

Destined to always miss each other...
