Buckminster Fuller: Starting with the Universe

Posted

R. Buckminster Fuller (1895–1983) was one of the greatest American thinkers of the 20th century—and a visionary for the 21st century. Buckminster Fuller: Starting with the Universe is the first major US exhibition of Fuller’s work in 35 years and is a testament to his fascinating mix of utopian vision and organic pragmatism. A combination of models, sketches, and other artifacts—many on view for the first time—represent six decades of the artist’s integrated approach to housing, transportation, communication, and cartography.

Buckminster Fuller’s grandson, Jaime Snyder, provides insight on the exhibition.
