Does anybody remember when they were first discussing designs for a "new tabernacle"--that ultimately became the Conference Center--and they were talking about a massive concrete dome? More egg-shaped than most domes...I remember reading an interview with the firm that was pushing the LDS Church to go that direction, but it was definitely sometime back in the 20th Century. I don't know if it ever got as far as renderings, but I'll take the Lenin's Tomb look over the L'eggs container.

Now if they'd just re-open the roof gardens to the public...
