The Comprehensivist

Buckminster Fuller called himself a "comprehensive, anticipatory design scientist." Fuller was an American architect, engineer, inventor and visionary who died in 1985. Today, his work continues to inspire builders, designers, artists, chemists, cartographers – the list seems endless. Now, selections of Fuller’s work are on display within the walls of the Whitney Museum. It's part of an effort to explain how Fuller's work is growing more relevant.
