Buckminster Fuller's world view

Immerse yourself in the world view of Buckminster Fuller, the man who designed the Biosphère’s dome. An inventor ahead of his time, Fuller popularized the concept of Spaceship Earth, since on Earth, like on a spaceship, it is crucial to conserve and respect the limited resources available. We’re all part of the crew of Spaceship Earth and we have the power to make a difference.

One of the precursors of contemporary environmental thinking

A self-taught inventor, engineer and architect, Richard Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) holds a unique place in the history of contemporary American architecture. His avant-garde philosophy can be summed up as seeking maximum efficiency for minimum effort. 

Long before society developed a global vision and concern for  environmental protection, Buckminster Fuller spoke of interrelationships, synergy and integrated functions and wondered how we could make the best use of our technology while improving humanity. Already in the early 1960s, he predicted that the survival of humankind would be compromised unless we stopped wasting the Earth’s natural resources. Come and discover the world through the eyes of this fascinating man!
