Studio Dror's Montreal Dome Concept
on 26 April 2016
Ahead of the 50th anniversary of Montreal’s Expo 67, New York-based design studio Dror has proposed adding a new structure to complement the city's now-iconic Biosphere. The project, simply called the Montreal Dome, would mimic Buckminster Fuller’s original Biosphere in both shape and size while adding a mesh-like layer atop the dome, allowing vegetation to grow and shield it from the outside. The concept cultural space could host music festivals, art exhibitions, hackathons, food markets and more all year long. Take a look at the proposed structure through Dror’s video.
