Abstract:

"As an engineer, a poet; as a designer, a philosopher; as a researcher, an artist - R. Buckminster Fuller established new standards. Convinced that specialists usually create more problems than they solve, he developed his concepts for a vision of the whole. In addition, in his unique way Fuller inter-linked the fields of architecture, geometry, engineering, natural science and anthropology. This book provides a highly multi-faceted insight into Fuller's world, also showing many of its up-to-now unknown sides."--BOOK JACKET.
