Summary

This volume takes a fresh look at the work of R. Buckminster Fuller, the famed architect, designer, inventor, and futurist. Leading scholars from a variety of fields reconsider Fuller, on the basis of the 1,300-plus linear feet of material newly accessible in the Fuller Archive at Stanford, and offer an extensive account of his contributions. Instead of lauding Fuller as a prophet whose work foretold sustainable architecture and nanotechnology, or dismissing him as a "delirious technician" with a talent for linguistic obfuscation, New Views on R. Buckminster Fuller presents a more balanced picture of the man and his work than has previously been available.
