This original prototype, a geodesic dome 15 metres in diameter recently restored by the collector Robert Rubin, has been publicly exhibited only once before, in 1981 , during celebrations of the 150 th anniversary of the foundation of Los Angeles. This presentation of The Fly’s Eye Dome is planned for two successive editions.
