Jon Davey, an SIU graduate in environmental design and professor in the ASA School of Architecture, shows off the Buckminster Fuller Dome Home Monday in Carbondale. Buckminster Fuller, who was a research professor during his time at SIU, built the dome in 1960, which he lived in with his wife for 11 years, said Davey. The Dome Home will undergo reconstruction April 19 to be turned into a community museum displaying the life of Fuller. “One of the recognized, intellectual figures will have a physical grounding in the city of Carbondale where people can come experience it,” Davey said.REMY ABROUGHTDAILY EGYPTIAN
