What The Dust Blew

Another valley landmark: This geodesic dome bank in Tempe dates from 1962 and the credited architects are Weaver and Drover. This is a panel dome, attributable to the American industrialist Henry J. Kaiser, who licensed the geodesic dome from Buckminster Fuller. Kaiser mass-produced panel domes out of his Oakland, California aluminum works.
