In this day and age, technology is blowing everyone’s mind.

The Buckminster Fuller Institute’s programs combine unique insight into global trends and needs with a comprehensive approach to design. Much of this is inspired by Fuller’s geodesic dome—a self sustaining structure removing the laws of weight-related physics that not only stands as an architectural wonder, but as a blueprint for
