American polymath Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) is remembered for his geodesic dome designs and the 'buckminsterfullerene' carbon molecules that were named after them. However, his work reached far beyond this structural innovation including radical inventions in transport and housing as well as pioneering ideas on globalization and sustainability. This study of Fuller's life and work explores how he drew inspiration from nature to develop his design theories and includes an introduction to his thinking on geometry and his theory of 'synergetics'.
