Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) was both a pioneer architect of the modern era and a global theorist. Fuller developed a system of geometry that he called “Energetic-Synergetic geometry,” the most famous example of which is the geodesic dome. His many designs for automobiles and living spaces were applications of a wider theory.

“I tended to think of solving problems with technology and not hot air there would come a day when we would free humanity from the sewer lines and water lines and the real estate man; the wealth is the land and not in the ingenuity of wealth,” Fuller says in this interview with Robert Storr.

A historical interview originally recorded in 1981 and re-edited in 2003 with support from the Lyn Blumenthal Memorial Fund.
