Jacket Design by Lustig and Reich (from a Fuller tensegrity model).
McHale’s survey of architect Buckminster Fuller is an engrossing look at the architect and his philosophies. Approaching architecture with an unshakeable awareness of the world’s needs, Buckminster Fuller’s practice is intentional, conceptually conscious, and driven by tenets of design’s adaptation and accessibility. Including over 100 illustrations, selected writings from the architect himself, a chronology and selected biography, McHale unpacks the architect’s difficult life and abstract system of ideas in a compelling exposition of another kind of architecture, challenging us to reconsider the purpose architecture is meant to play today.
