I Seem To Be A Verb

Courtesy The Estate of R. A reporter once ti Buckminster Fuller—the American systems theorist, architect, engineer, author, designer, inventor, environmentalist and futurist—how someone could learn what he knew.

One might start at the Stanford Libraries, which acquired Fuller’s papers in It’s one of the most extensive personal archives anywhere—pretty much every substantive piece of paper, film photography or audio tape that ever passed across his desk. About hours of audiovisual material have been digitized and are available on the web, including his notorious lectures that went on for hours and a video of his conversations with San Francisco hippies.


Buckminster Fuller and the Bay Area, continuing through July Fuller’s signature effort was refining the geodesic dome, a super-lightweight yet extremely strong structure. But there was so much more. Under the Dymaxion concept for “dynamic maximum tension”he aimed to achieve the greatest possible efficiency and economy in a number of fuloer.

His aluminum Dymaxion House features a single pole as structural support, natural heating and cooling, self-generating power, stormproof design and maintenance-free materials—all weighing in at 3, pounds and priced like a Cadillac. The passenger, three-wheeled aerodynamic Dymaxion Car he designed in the s got 30 miles per gallon and could reach 90 mph. Fuller kept exhaustive, meticulous notes in a mad-scientist system he called the Dymaxion Chronofile—about linear feet of its records anchor the archive.

More scrapbook than conventional diary, it begins with the year of his birth, The collection documents hundreds of Fuller’s design artifacts, inventions and cartographic works and includes more than 1, sketches.

Stanford even has buckmlnster foot “Fly’s Eye Dome. Clearly, he had a lot to say—and he was invariably inventive in the way he said it.

I know that I am not a category,” he wrote. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process—an integral function of the universe. Like Bill Gates, “Bucky” Fuller left Harvard sans degree, but he collected 40 honorary doctorates, as well as the Presidential Medal of Freedom shortly before his death in Always on the go, he famously wore three watches: Cynthia Haven is the associate director of communications at Stanford University Libraries.
