Buckminster Fuller Opening at Princeton

Commemorating the 125th anniversary of R. Buckminster Fuller’s birth this exhibition traces Fuller's ambition to measure physical experience into an ever-expanding pattern of relationships and to coordinate these into a conceptual network of words and concepts that shaped the basis for his thinking.

Pattern-Thinking comes to Princeton in the form of an immersive, inflatable, multimedia sphere occupied by the public and representing three different archives: Fuller at Princeton, Fuller and Design Education, and Fuller Today. It is a contemporary version of Fuller’s Geoscope projects built alongside Princeton students during two different teaching appointments in 1953 and 1960.

The exhibition was curated by Daniel López-Pérez. Experience design was created by Jan Pistor for iart.
