Buckminster Fuller and the Geodesic Dome

Buckminster Fuller was an American architect and inventor, most notably know for the design of the Geodesic Dome; a spherical building based on Fuller’s theories of ‘energetic-synergetic geometry’. Through his designs, Fuller sought to ‘find ways of doing more with less’ and his development of the Geodesic Dome was widely hailed as ‘a possible solution to world housing shortages.’

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
