The Biosphère ( 45°30′50.73″N, 73°31′53.38″W) of Environment Canada is a museum in Montreal dedicated to water and the environment. It is located at Parc Jean-Drapeau, on Saint Helen's Island in the building of the United States pavilion for the 1967 World Exhibition Expo 67.






[ Expo 67
The architect of the geodesic dome was Richard Buckminster Fuller. The building originally formed an enclosed structure of steel and acrylic cells, 76 meters (250 ft) in diameter and 62 meters (200 ft) high. A complex system of shades was used to control the internal temperature.

The architects for the interior exhibition space were from Golden Metak Productions. Visitors had access to four large theme platforms divided into seven levels. The building included a 37-meter-long escalator, the longest ever built at the time.
