"Starting with the Universe"

March 14 - June 21, 2009

From his geodesic dome to books popularizing the terms "spaceship earth" and "synergetics," the life mission of R. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) was to create design solutions that benefited the largest segment of humanity while consuming the fewest resources. This exhibition explores Fuller's extraordinary body of work, focusing on his wide-ranging and sometimes controversial role within the worlds of art, architecture, and utopian thought.
This exhibition is organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art in association with the Department of Special Collections of the Stanford University Libraries.
