The human-interest site Quazen has rounded up different example of geodesic domes from around the world — full globes, half domes and Buckminster Fuller originals. We've pulled our favorites from their list and threw in some domes that we've previously featured on Apartment Therapy...

1 Montreal's Biosphere designed by Buckminster Fuller for the 1967 World's Fair.
2 Telusphere — Vancouver's Science World.
3 Spaceship Earth at Epcot Center in Walt Disney World, Orlando. (RIP Captain E-O)
4 The Matr Mandir globe is at the center of the Utopian experiment Auroville in India.
5 Eden Project domes in Cornwall, England.

Have you visited any of these geodesic domes and globes?
