From the Inside Flap:

Buckminster Fuller, the brilliant and eccentric futurist philosopher best known as the inventor of the Geodesic Dome, was one of the most creative contributors to innovative thought and technology of the 20th century. This Leonardo da Vinci of our time - an incomparable designer, engineer, and architect - proved that a single individual, through sheer initiative, can have an astounding impact on the world.

As one of the first to perceive that humanity’s very survival was dependent on global cooperation and making the necessities of life available to all, he devoted most of his life to that cause. He created modern technologies and revolutionary designs that would support humanity in working as one global community on what he referred to as “Spaceship Earth.” Fuller’s was a bold, global perspective - one based on a new way of merging Nature and technology. With great enthusiasm, he extrapolated from the intricate structure of Nature to design imaginative, ultramodern inventions for the common good, among which the Geodesic Dome, the Dymaxion Car, the Dymaxion House, and the Dymaxion Map figure most prominently.

Lloyd Steven Sieden, a respected educator and consultant on Buckminster Fuller, remains true to the vitality and imagination of Fuller’s ideas and wisdom. His book follows Fuller’s life in order to translate his complex ideas into clear, accessible language. Sieden brings new light to Fuller’s fascinating belief system and the rationale behind his futuristic designs; he also shows how these unprecedented designs model the framework of Fuller’s elaborate philosophy.

This eloquent and inspiring work fulfills the need for a book that ultimately recognizes and articulates Fuller’s monumental contributions to humanity. It conveys an appreciative portrayal of the man affectionately dubbed “the grandfather of the Universe.” It also vividly illustrates Fuller’s enormous impact upon and contribution to society as well as the ways in which his visionary ideas will continue to shape and expand our perception of Spaceship Earth for years to come.

About the Author:
