Richard Buckminster Fuller's Architecture Influence

June 17, 2014

Buckminster Fuller is a historically famous architecture, scientist and inventor that is known for making 28 patents, authoring 28 books and he received 47 honorary degrees. His designs are revolutionary and still very present within today's architectural landscape. He is most famously known for his geodesic dome. The design consists of triangles that all interlock to spread the stress equally among the structure.


Dome Homes

Over 300,000 dome shaped homes still are prevalent today. Buckminster Fuller's aims were to solve global problems surrounding housing after WW2, shelter, transportation, education, energy, ecological destruction, and poverty.

Buckminster Fuller has said that he encountered an incident that he was suspended into the air and a light came that said the following:

From now on you need never await temporal attestation to your thought. You think the truth. You do not have the right to eliminate yourself. You do not belong to you. You belong to Universe. Your significance will remain forever obscure to you, but you may assume that you are fulfilling your role if you apply yourself to converting your experiences to the highest advantage of others.
