Dr. Richard Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) is recognised for his work on the Geodesic Dome. A geodesic dome is a hemispherical thin-shell structure, lattice shell, based on a geodesic polyhedron. Disney World’s Epoch Center features Fuller’s dome. He has been recognised as the first futurist. Robert T. Kiyosaki, the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, mentions him as ‘a man who turned predicting the future into a science. Many of his predictions have come true, and many more coming true today’.
“Dr Fuller is a man who is almost impossible to describe or put into a category. He is referred to as a futurist, an inventor, a teacher, a philosopher, and an architect. Twice he was admitted to Harvard University and twice he was asked to leave,” writes Robert T. Kiyosaki, to whom he dedicated the book SECOND CHANCE: For Your Money, Your Life and Our World. “Most loved for his humanity, Dr. Fuller is often called “The Planet’s Friendly Genius” and “Grandfather of the Future”. In 1982 John Denver wrote and recorded the song What One Man Can Do, a dedication to Dr. Fuller.”
We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims. -Dr. Richard Buckminster Fuller
“The dark ages still reign over all humanity, and the depth and persistence of this domination are only now becoming clear. This Dark Ages prison has no steel bars, chains, or locks. Instead, it is locked by misorientation and built of misinformation.” -Dr. Richard Buckminster Fuller
