the gordon strong automobile objective was conceived by frank lloyd wright
as a project for businessman gordon strong to provide views on the summit
of the sugar loaf mountain and serve as an objective for short motor trips.
the spiraling roadways, cantilevered to allow full views, were supported by
a vast dome 150 feet in diameter. under the dome wright proposed a planetarium,
to be surrounded by a circular gallery containing aquaria and natural-history exhibits.
