Buckminster Fuller: Starting with the Universe

Buckminster Fuller: Starting with the Universe


FULLER. Hays, K. Michael and Dana A. Miller

Pap. New Haven, 2008

Book ID: 76653

Chronicles Fuller's profound, often prophetic contributions, including his environmentally sensitive building designs. The essays illuminate the underappreciated thematic interactions of many sculptors, painters, musicians, and architects with this self-described "comprehensive anticipatory design scientist," including contemporary artists wrestling with Fuller's legacy today. Reproductions of original drawings and models - including those for Fuller's 4D house, Wichita House, the Montreal Expo dome, and the sole extant Dymaxion car - plus a reprinted 1966 New Yorker profile on Fuller by Calvin Tomkins, complete the fascinating tribute. Whitney Museum catalogue. Some wear to jacket including a half inch tear, else very good condition.
