His far-reaching perspective on the world’s challenges and issues left behind a legacy of numerous patents and inventions, exerting a massive influence over the generations that have followed. This issue of the magazine zooms in on Fuller’s seven principles: 4D, dymaxion, synergetics, geodesic, tensegrity, design science, and Spaceship Earth.
