The Science World "golf ball" is actually a geodesic dome, the design of which was created by American inventor R. Buckminster Fuller (1895 1983). Fuller patented 28 inventions in his lifetime; perhaps the most famous is the geodesic dome which was patented on June 29, 1954. One of the most famous geodesic domes in the world was the American pavilion at Expo '67 in Montreal.
The original architect was Bruno Freschi; the architect for the additions made to transform the Expo Center into Science World was Boak Alexander.
