Today marks the 117th birthday of Bucky Fuller! An architect, engineer, designer, inventor, and idealist, Buckminster Fuller developed numerous inventions, and is probably best known for creating the geodesic dome.
I just invent. Then I wait until man comes around to needing what I’ve invented.
― Richard Buckminster Fuller
On a related note, don’t forget to check out The Utopian Impulse: Buckminster Fuller and the Bay Area at SFMOMA (which features Fuller’s Dymaxion map printed on the cake pictured above)… the show closes July 29!
