There will be a geodesic dome over Manhattan



Bukminster Fuller : Architect
Buckminster Fuller's 1968 proposal for a geodesic dome over Manhattan. Fuller, a Panglossian polymath, engineer, theorist, inventor and architect, managed to produce several of his patented geodesic domes, often for world expos – but rather than seeing them as a convenient form of hangar for exhibits, Fuller thought their easily assembled, easily disassembled technology and their spacious, free architecture suggested an entirely new paradigm in living.
