Design Academy Eindhoven: Lecture Buckminster Fuller - October2007

1,354 views

Published on

Richard Buckminster Fuller extensive body of work seems to be rediscovered by every new generation, and as such his ideas and attitude still radiate the same profound radicalism as it had in the 1930s and 1940s. Therefore it was interesting to lecture and discuss the man and his universe in a setting (the Design Academy) where science and technology is often a secondary or even tertiary point of interest.
