Buckminster Fuller was a man of extraordinary vision. As a philosopher, architect, urban planner, and inventor, his list of ideas was almost infinite, but all meant for one purpose: creating a wonderful, sustainable life for all, here on Spaceship Earth. The geodesic dome, Fuller’s most famous invention, was supposed to cover the face of the earth and provide safe, pleasant, and easily built shelter for the masses. Come on in, join Buckminster Fuller for a tour of his dome in Illinois, and listen to his musings about the future.
