La Géode

La Géode is one of the largest geodesic domes in the world, measuring almost thirty-four feet in diameter. Created in 1983 by Adrien Fainsilber, a French architect, it was built two years later by engineer Gérard Chamaillou. La Géode sits in the Parc de la Villette, just behind the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie, and houses a 1000-square-meter hemispheric IMAX screen and the world's only 12:1 sound system.

Pretty boring, huh? Oh, hey...did I mention that La Géode is CHROME-PLATED!?
