Dr. Lev Zetlin was responsible for numerous inventions, including pre-stressed concrete for airport runways, and the space-frame roof, which uses light-gauge metal to form grand open-space enclosures with minimal interior supports (used for the first hangars housing jumbo jets). His most well known project is the World's Fair New York State Pavilion, called the Tent of Tomorrow, which still stands today.
