Fuller's development of his Dymaxion Map and Car and Geodesic geometry, are discussed in detail as is Noguchi's multifaceted career as sculptor, landscape architect, industrial designer, dance-set designer, and artist without borders who challenged the artificial opposition between the fine and applied arts.
