u003cpu003eFor Fuller, nature u003ciu003eisu003c/iu003e the most exquisite technology we know; and what underlies all of his work is the quest to uncover nature's fundamental principles--in order to foster their manifestation as a u003ciu003epattern integrityu003c/iu003e 'for successfully regenerating all life aboard our planetary spaceship.'" -Jaime Lawrence Snyder,u003cbru003e u003cbru003e Lars Müller Fuller Series Editoru003c/pu003e u003cpu003eThe work of R. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) is among the most extraordinary and inventive in 20th-century design and architecture, not least for its incorporation of a range of intellectual and technical disciplines. Fuller described himself as an "engineer, inventor, mathematician, architect, cartographer, philosopher, poet, cosmogonist, comprehensive designer and choreographer.''u003cbru003e u003cbru003e u003ciu003eR. Buckminster Fuller: Pattern-Thinkingu003c/iu003e is a major reassessment of Fuller's legacy in the context of design, examining his singular vision of new conceptual models for design and architecture, alongside his ideas on their potentially world-altering consequences. Drawing extensively on his archive and with over 300 images, the book follows Fuller's explorations of geometry, language and intellectual property in their relation to design principles and pedagogy, organizing its survey of Fuller's work through parallel conceptual threads rather than in a linear chronology of his career.u003cbru003e u003cbru003e u003cbu003eDaniel López-Pérezu003c/bu003e is an associate professor and a founding faculty member of the Architecture Program at the University of San Diego.
