Buckminster Fuller, United States Pavilion, (1967)
Probably the best known geodesic structure is the United States Pavilion in Montreal, Canada, designed for expo 1967. This 250 foot diameter, diaphanous, silvery sphere caught the imagination of all who visited the expo and became the symbolic icon of all subsequent world’s fairs and of visionary urban construction. Every expo after 1967 had it’s spherical exhibition structure; every city of the future had it’s spherical building prominently positioned in it’s urban fabric.

Photograph by Isamu Noguchi of a group of his friends in Kamakura, Japan, ca. 1952.  
A veritable who’s who of post- war Japan, including a number of Noguchi’s collaborators.  Seated at the table from left:  Kitaoji Rosanjin (potter/ restaurateur), Kenzo Tange (architect), Isamu Kenmochi (industrial designer), and Saburo Hasegawa (artist/ art critic).  Standing far left is Noguchi’s then wife, the actress Shirley Yamaguchi.  (Other three standing figures are unidentified.)

Isamu Noguchi’s space, California Scenario in Costa Mesa, California, 1980- 82 
A 1.6 acre symbolic imagining of California’s diverse ecosystems, this landscape space stands as one of Noguchi’s most fully realized visions, consolidating many ideas from his previous collaborations with architects on garden spaces.  The mound of fitted stones at center is Spirit of the Lima Bean, a reference to the main crop of this region with the rise of agriculture and Noguchi’s playful response to a request by the developer Henry Segerstrom for a final monumental sculpture for the space.
