Join Us This Sunday for Discussion on Buckminster Fuller

Join us this Sunday for a video & group discussion on Richard Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller (July 12, 1895 – July 1, 1983)  an American systems theorist, architect, engineer, author, designer, inventor, and futurist.

Fuller published more than 30 books, inventing and popularizing terms such as “Spaceship Earth“, ephemeralization, and synergetic. He also developed numerous inventions, mainly architectural designs, the best known of which is the geodesic dome. Carbon molecules known as fullerenes were later named by scientists for their resemblance to geodesic spheres.

Lou Young will be bringing his newly-arrived order of Fair Trade coffee & tea, gift wrap, “Fair Trade” totes, etc.
