Richard Buckminster Fuller: Dymaxion Car, FOSTER UND PARTNER

Bucky Fuller & Spaceship Earth
A project by Norman Foster

11.06.2011 –

A complete biographic overview of the work of Richard Buckminster Fuller (1895–1983), from the trailblazing Dymaxion House to his famous geodesic domes.


The exhibition was compiled by the architects Lord Norman Foster, with whom Fuller worked closely in the last 12 years of his life, and Luis Fernández-Galiano, professor at Universidad Politécnica in Madrid. The works featured, which include photographs, films, drawings, sketches, structures, and models (e.g. the spectacular reconstruction of his futuristic Dymaxion Car #4), represent key moments in Buckminster Fuller’s life and work. His synthesis of architecture, design and art, visionary spatial concepts and technological innovations is absolutely unique.
