But he was also an outsider: a technologist with a poet’s imagination who developed theories of environmental control in the thirties ("more with less") and who anticipated the globalization of our planet ("think global—act local").

Story

As an architect, engineer, entrepreneur, and poet, Buckminster Fuller (1895–1983) was a quintessentially American self-made man. But he was also an outsider: a technologist with a poet’s imagination who developed theories of environmental control in the thirties ("more with less") and who anticipated the globalization of our planet ("think global—act local"). The visual reader Your Private Sky examines and documents Fuller’s theories, ideas, and projects, and critically deals with his ideology of "rescue through technology."
