The redesign and reinvention of society based on natural laws and the interconnectedness of all life, that was the message that Buckminster Fuller spread during his lifetime.
Buckminister Fuller was a self-educated American architect, systems theorist, author, designer, inventor, and futurist.
After dropping out of school, struggling for many years and ending up in dire poverty at age 32, Fuller reinvented himself through self-education by making his life an ”experiment to find what a single individual could contribute to changing the world and benefiting all humanity.”
