This brochure uses the construction of the Hawaiian Village Dome in this brochure to advertise the building of geodisic domes. The Village was the site one of the earlier geodesic domes constructed in the United States. Wanting an auditorium at the Honolulu village, Henry Kaiser acquired the license to produce geodesic domes following the design work of Buckminster Fuller. An aluminium-skinned dome with a 145 ft (44 m)-wide span was manufactured at the company’s plant in Oakland, California and shipped to Hawaii. When Kaiser understood that the materials had arrived in Hawaii, he flew from San Francisco to follow the construction — only to discover the building was already complete, having been constructed in only 22 hours.
