Why we should all honor Bucky Fuller for the contributions he made.
Richard Buckminster Fuller “Bucky” was an American architect, systems theorist, author, designer, inventor, philosopher, critic of work, and futurist. Bucky had one of the most fascinating and original minds of his century. Born in 1895 in Milton, Massachusetts, he was the latest – if not the last – of the New England Transcendentalists. Bucky took an unconventional path and was inspired to find a way use natural resources more efficiently to ensure there would be enough to take care of everyone, which is why we created an EARTHism specifically for him!
Take a moment to reflect on how EARTHism for honoring Bucky Fuller makes you feel.
