I had the good fortune
of meeting Buckminster Fuller many times and getting
to know him as a person and a gifted genius. He
had a profound devotion and commitment to humanity
in his world view into the future as well as in
His desire and purpose,
through a Design Science Revolution, was to improve
the quality of life on the planet. His was a revolution
for integrating and enhancing human systems rather
than taking them apart.
As we celebrate
the Centennial of Buckminster Fuller's birth,
we share in his memory and in the opportunity
to study his philosophy as we expressed in his
work, to learn from this great contemporary master
how to make a more livable world.
Bucky's ideas will
continue to nourish us all and will help us know
what to do with the option that is ours to improve
our home planet Earth.
