Situated at the foot of the entrance to Trinity Bellwoods Park, a fluorescent dome serves as a beacon and threshold between Park and City. It is universal in form and origin. Utilizing fluorescent tubes and Tesla Coils, its modes of construction and illumination pay tribute to the ambitions of Buckminster Fuller and Nikola Tesla: To provide universally accessible models of architecture and energy distribution.
