Montreal, Quebec, Canada: Montreal Biosphere | Earth | Satellite Saint Helen's Island Aquatic Complex "The Montreal Biosphere is an environmental museum that was initially constructed as the United States Pavilion for the 1967 World's Fair. The structure—a geodesic dome—was designed by Buckminster Fuller and used a complex system of shades to control its internal temperature. The Saint Helen's Island Aquatic Complex, now open to the public, was built for the 2005 swimming world championship." 45°30′50.73″N 73°31′53.38″W 4/19/2014

"The Daily Overview project was inspired, and derives its name, from an idea known as the Overview Effect. This term refers to the sensation astronauts have when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole. They have the chance to appreciate our home in its entirety, to reflect on its beauty and its fragility all at once. That's the cognitive shift that we hope to inspire."
