Designing the universe with Buckminster Fuller

"Bucky" Fuller spent his life working across multiple fields such as architecture, design, geometry, engineering, science, poetry and education, in his pursuit to make the world work for 100% of humanity. Fuller insisted on resisting monikers of specialization to describe his work, preferring instead to describe himself as a 'comprehensive anticipatory design scientist ' - 'an emerging synthesis of artist, inventor, mechanic, objective economist and evolutionary strategist.' This approach resulted in the creation of numerous artifacts that cross boundaries and defy normal categorization.
