Buckminster Fuller is best known for the invention of the geodesic dome –the lightest, strongest, and most cost-effective structure ever devised. The geodesic dome is a breakthrough in shelter, not only in cost-effectiveness, but in ease of construction. Today over 300,000 domes dot the globe

Buckminster Fuller holds one of his inventions, a tensegrity sphere, made of rods and cables, proposed as the basis for floating habitats known as Spherical Tensegrity Atmospheric Research Stations (or “STARS”), 1979. Fuller envisioned giant versions of the structure that were so light and strong that when they were filled with hot air, they’d float above the Earth, supporting stations up to a mile in diameter.
