On the old site of EXPO 67 in Montreal a large Geodesic Dome can be seen. It was the home of the United States of America Pavilion (USA PAVILION) during the 1967 EXPO in Montreal. In 1976 the Dome caught fire during renovations and the exterior acrylic structure burnt away. The site remained closed until 1990 when the Canadian Government, Environment Canada purchased the site to establish the Biosphère Environment Museum showcasing the water ecosystems of the Great Lakes-Saint Lawrence River regions.
A recent addition to the Biosphere, sitting in it’s shadows is the Ecoological Solar House. (Not Spelled Ecological but Ecoological). Slated to be available for public visits until 2013 the Ecoological house is the resulting work of 40 Engineering and Architecture Students from École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) – Université du Québec à Montréal, the École Polytechnique – Université de Montréal, and McGill University who competed in the American Department of Energy’s 2007 Solar Decathlon in Washington D.C. Placing 8th out of 20 participating universities the Ecoological Solar House is now open to visitors at the cost of $2 until 2013.
