The exhibition focuses on the work of the Montréal designer Jeffrey Lindsay (1924–84), founder and director of the Fuller Research Foundation Canadian Division based in Montréal between 1949 and 1956. Photographs, drawings, books, documents, drawing instruments and design tools on loan from the Fonds Jeffrey Lindsay of the University of Calgary’s Canadian Architectural Archives and various other archives and collections will highlight the intricacy of those spherical structures. The exhibition will also feature a series of models, structural details at 1:1 scale, and a prototype 6 m diameter geodesic dome designed and built by Studio Cube with a team of students from UQAM’s École de design.
