In 2012, Greg Kress, a physics graduate student at Stanford, installed a geodesic dome constructed from corrugated cardboard hexagons in the decommissioned facility called End Station II, which used to be the second endpoint for a linear accelerator that is no longer in use at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. He called it the Imaginarium.

It served as a screening room for video pieces created by students enrolled in an art class taught by performance artist Jeremiah Barber.
