“One of the most beautiful books about a designer, ever.” – SolidSmack

In Buckminster Fuller: Poet of Geometry, artist and designer Cole Gerst brings us the illustrated life story of renowned 20th century inventor and utopian visionary, Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller. Most known for inventing the geodesic dome, Bucky dedicated his life to solving problems for humanity by “doing more with less.” His ideas continue to influence generations of designers, architects, scientists, and artists working to create a more sustainable planet. This book not only shows how important Fuller was during his lifetime, but how his ideas are even more relevant today than ever.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Bucky concluded that out of all the advances that mankind was making, housing was falling far behind. He thought his own daughter had even died due to poor housing conditions. He devoted himself to making the living situations better for all. Using his past experiences with the Navy and The Stockade Building Company he started his quest to do more with less. Using less material equaled less money required to build. He looked at how sailing masts were built and how dirigibles used engineering and lightweight materials to achieve a lighter than air quality. Noticing how bicycle spokes used tension to create a rigid structure, he saw the benefits of applying this technique to building. The tetrahedron, he concluded, was the basic building block of the universe because of its strength and doing more with less.
