Modern Design with - Buckminster Fuller

Buckminster Fuller was a visionary; a global thinker, and problem solver who has had a profound effect on architects, designers, artists and scientists worldwide. Most upon hearing his name first think of his geodesic dome - more than 300,000 dot the globe - but Bucky’s legacy includes 28 patents, as many books, has inspired the creation of the Whole Earth Catalogue and influenced the sustainability movement. Through July 29, 2012, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) will present The Utopian Impulse: Buckminster Fuller and the Bay Area, the first exhibition to consider Fuller's local design legacy. The presentation will feature some 65 works, including prints, drawings, photographs, documentary video, books, and models.
