Geodesic Dome

Buckminster Fuller revolutionized structural engineering when he used the natural strength and stability of the triangle to create the first geodesic domes. In this video segment adapted from Building Big, series host and narrator David Macaulay describes the evolution of the geodesic dome and how its design has made the construction of immense stadium domes possible.

This resource was adapted from Building Big: "Domes."
