Created/Published
Documentation compiled after 1933.

Notes
Survey number HABS MO-1135-L
National Register Number: 71001065
Significance: The world's first completely air-conditioned greenhouse and the first geodesic dome to be enclosed in rigid Plexiglass panels. The broad climactic range within the dome (from the Amazonian rain forest to the cool uplands of India) is achieved by sophisticated controls instead of conventional partitioning.
