Buckminster Fuller’s Dome Re-Assembled and in NYC

Buckminster Fuller’s Dome Re-Assembled and in NYC
Marco Raab

One of the latest examples of Buckminster Fuller‘s iconic geodesic domes, The Fly’s Eye Dome, has been re-assembled at La Guardia Place in New York. The Center for Architecture New York teamed up with the Buckminster Fuller Institute, Max Protetch Gallery and some local institutions to put this prototype from the late 1970’s on temporary display.

In addition, they are hosting an exhibition with over four hundred volumes of books by and about the great American visionary, inventor, theorist, and unofficial inventor of the minivan.

Fuller left planet earth 25 years ago but if it weren’t for the charmingly weathered look, the structure could easily be mistaken as one of the pieces from the recent ‘Design and the Elastic Mind’ exhibition at the MoMA.

The Whitney Museum has a show coming up as well on June 26, and in addition to the Fly’s Eye Dome, there are a number of other events planned throughout June in New York City.
