On April 19th, restoration work will begin on the world’s first geodesic dome home in Carbondale, Illinois. The house was built in 1960 by the inventor Buckminster Fuller and his wife, Lady Anne, in just 7 hours using 60 wooden triangle panels. The pair lived in the house until 1971, and once they left, the building was rented out as student housing for the nearby Southern Illinois University campus for the next 30 years, falling into serious disrepair over the decades.
