The Centre de Design de Montréal opens "Montréal's Geodesic Dreams" an exhibition, curated by Carlo Carbone and Réjean Legault, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the US Pavilion at Expo 67 designed by R. Buckminster Fuller and Shoji Sadao.
Composed of photographs, drawings, books, documents and objects, the exhibition focuses on the work of the Montreal designer Jeffrey Lindsay (1924-84), founder and director of the Fuller Research Foundation Canadian Division. It explores the "geodesic moment" from the first geodesic experiments of the late 1940s to the proliferation of DIY domes in the early 1970s.
A bilingual catalogue accompanying the exhibition will be published by Dalhousie Architectural Press in mid-October.
