In 1953, Buckminster Fuller was commissioned by the architect of the Nautilus Motor Inn in Woods Hole to design a building for the Inn's restaurant. The geodesic dome that Fuller constructed with the help of his students in 1954 is his oldest surviving geodesic dome and one of the first built for commercial use.

The Dome Restaurant closed in 2002, and as of 2008, there were plans for Fuller's grandnephew to oversee the restoration of the building.
