Buckminster Fuller was an American inventor and futurist whose prolific and widely admired work gave us the geodesic dome, the remarkable Dymaxion Chronofile, the term ""Spaceship Earth" and the Dymaxion car. The Norman Foster-built Dymaxion car had a rare public outing at the exclusive boutique-style Salon Prive event in London this week. Nice photo file on this one.
