Did you know that the largest open-work geodesic dome
in the world is right here, in our own back yard?

The 45-acre campus known as Materials Park features an open latticework geodesic dome arching over a semi-circular office building. Originally completed in 1959, the world headquarters of ASM International (formerly known as the American Society for Metals) is the result of the vision of four men: William Hunt Eisenman, one of ASM's founders and its National Secretary and first Managing Director; Cleveland modern architect John Terence Kelly; architect and engineer Thomas C. Howard of Synergetics Inc.; and renowned futurist R. Buckminster Fuller.

Hailed 50 years ago for its futuristic design, Materials Park is renowned today for its timelessness. In 2009, Materials Park was named to the National Register of Historic Places and designated as a Historic Landmark by the state of Ohio. An extensive renovation was completed in July 2011.

You will have a chance to tour the state-of-the-art materials laboratory and classroom facility, where professionals can develop and strengthen their knowledge of materials science, metallurgy, failure analysis, heat treating, surface engineering, metallography, and other topics.
