07-06-08: Fly’s Eye Dome on LaGuardia Place, designed by Buckminster Fuller

1996: Flash back to the first screening at my first Sundance. Holiday Village Cinemas. “Buckminster Fuller: Thinking Out Loud,” where I am introduced to the life and work of the visionary designer.

2005: Vacation in Ann Arbor and Deerborn, Michigan. Lost in ginormous Henry Ford Museum until we meet up on a tour through Fuller’s utopian, circular Dymaxion House.

2006: At one of my favorite tiny museums, the Noguchi in Queens, for “Best of Friends: Buckminster Fuller and Isamu Noguchi” to see collaboration between designer-scientist and sculptor.

2008: At the Whitney for “Buckminster Fuller: Starting with the Universe,” where a photo illustration of Fuller’s imagined “Dome over Manhattan” matches the one above our sofa at home.

“A designer is an emerging synthesis of artist, inventor, mechanic, objective economist and evolutionary strategist.” R. Buckminster Fuller
