Eine schöne 30-minütige Dokumentation über den „Union Tank Car Dome“, einer geodätischen Kuppel, die 1958 nach den Plänen von Buckmister Fuller entstand.

Upon its completion in October 1958, the Union Tank Car Dome, located north of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was the largest clear-span structure in the world. Based on the engineering principles of the visionary design scientist and philosopher Buckminster Fuller, this geodesic dome was, at 384 feet in diameter, the first large scale example of this building type.
