Buckminster Fuller: The father of the Geodesic Dome
R. Buckminster Fuller was a 20th century inventor and visionary who did not limit himself to one field but worked as a 'comprehensive anticipatory design scientist' to solve global problems. Fuller's ideas and work continues to influence new generations of designers, architects, scientists and artists working to create a sustainable planet.
1964 Time Magazine: Expose on Buckminster Fuller
He has been called “the first poet of technology”, “the greatest living genius of industrial-technical realization in building“, “an anticipator of the world to come - which is different from being a prophet”, “a seminal thinker”, and “an inspired child”. But all these encomiums are fairly recent. For most of his life, R. Buckminster Fuller was known simply as a crackpot.
He is also something more than the mere sum of his praise and criticism. He is a throwback to the classic American individualist, a mold which produced Thomas Edison and Thoreau - men with the fresh eye that sees and questions everything anew, and the crotchety mind that refuses to believe there is anything that cannot be done. What Fuller sees excites him with the vision of man's potentialities, and he has made it his mission to help man realize them. Says he: “Man knows so much and does so little.”
Last week this crackpot stepped off a plane in London, spouting words the minute his feet touched ground, and headed for a dinner in his honor at the Royal Institute of British Architects. On Sunday he went to Bristol for two days of touring and talking, His next stop: Ghana's University of Science and Technology, which has been waiting a year for his arrival this week to conduct a four-week research and development project.
Today Richard Buckminster Fuller, 68, of Carbondale, Ill. - whose college career never got past his freshman midyears - is famous for houses that fly and bathrooms without water, for cars and maps and ways of living bearing the mysterious word “Dymaxion,” for things called “octet trusses,” “synergetics” and “tensegrity.” But he is best known of all for his massive mid-century breakthrough known as the “geodesic dome.”
Requirements for maintenance will depend on your usage, location, and climate. The Dome frame structure should be occasionally checked at the frame intersection for bolt tightness.
