do you mean the bucky-fuller dome near the waterfront/port? i think it was built for the montreal worlds fair, which was in 1967. i believe it was envisioned as a temporary installation, but was left in place due to its popularity and importance.

montreal also has a "bio-sphere" at the olympic stadium. it is housed in what was once the olympic cyclying stadium, built for the 1976 olympics.

too much bio going on for coincidence.perhaps the bio-dome and bio-sphere are somehow connected (i think i heard that the bio-dome's exhibit was moved to the bio-sphere)...
