    Quizzical Pursuit
    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Created by Dave Guadagni

    Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
    Architecture Puzzler #79

    Question

    Who designed these domes and which has the longest clear span?

    Hagia Sophia Florence Cathedral Saint Peters in Rome St. Paul’s Cathedral in London American Pavilion in the 1967 World’s Fair in Montreal

    Answer

    Hagia Sophia: Anthemius of Tralles and Isidore of Miletus
    Florence Cathedral: Filippo Brunelleschi
    Saint Peters in Rome: Michelangelo
    St. Paul’s Cathedral in London: Sir Christopher Wren
    American Pavilion in the 1967 World’s Fair in Montreal: Buckminster Fuller

    Fuller's geodesic dome (now destroyed) at over 300 feet (90 meters) was, in its day, the largest clear-span structure in the world.
