We had a dome fad here, back in the 'sixties or early 'seventies, as I recall. The structures often were "dymaxion," comprised of polygonal components. We also have some striking vintage schools and other projects that used the metal (aluminum, like Kaiser's dome, if you recall that project) polygonal, faceted components. They're still beautiful--especially when lighted at night. I happened on one the other night, when visiting a declining city in the hinterlands.
Sic transit futurism.
