very large geodesic dome as the US pavilion at the Montreal Expo. Invented by R Buckminster Fuller, the geodesic dome becomes lighter and stronger as it's size (and volume) increases! (1967)

Buckminster Fuller holds one of his inventions, a tensegrity sphere, made of rods and cables, proposed as the basis for floating habitats known as Spherical Tensegrity Atmospheric Research Stations (or “STARS”), 1979. Fuller envisioned giant versions of the structure that were so light and strong that when they were filled with hot air, they’d float above the Earth, supporting stations up to a mile in diameter.
