R. Buckminster Fuller: World Man
Panel Discussion with Daniel Lopez-Perez
Special Guests Stan Allen and Alejandro Zaera-Polo
Storefront for Art and Architecture
Tuesday, February 25, 7–9pm
As part of Storefront’s Definition Series, inviting architects and critics to propose definitions of a specified term that has something to do (or not) with a publication, R. Buckminster Fuller: World Man will be a conversation about some of the key terms that constitute the body of Fuller’s World Man Lecture, and book. “Prime Design, Automation, Law of Conservation of Energy, Wealth, Universe, System, Total Challenge…” are amongst a few of the terms and definitions that are put forth providing an abstract but suggestive outline of Fuller’s “geometry of thinking.” Books will be on sale at the event.
