Buckminster Fuller

In my History of Industrial Design-Designers class taught by Bill Greene, each lecture features one important industrial designer/architect. Yesterday’s lecture was on Buckminster Fuller, a great designer who also studied at Black Mountain. While most designers of that time period were interested in cubes, Fuller loved triangles and the geometry they created. He also developed the geodesic dome (think of the giant sphere shape at Epcot). He was into practical, inexpensive transportation and shelter, and developed what he hoped to be a safer and more aerodynamic car. This car was called the Dymaxion and was extremely fuel efficient for the time period- about 30 miles a gallon. Professor Greene showed us a video of the car turning around a small radius- the video showed it turning around a police officer over and over again.
