Richard Buckminster Fuller\'s World Game Lab


Date: Sat, Oct 14 and Sun, Oct 15, 17:00-22:00
Venue: Az W Podium
free admission

Richard Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) was a visionary whose utopias have become reality today: a proponent of a networked world as opposed to a hierarchic one; an early endorser of the build it yourself culture; pioneer of the connection between man and environment. In the 1930s Buckminster Fuller began to experiment with new ways of depicting the planet. This culminated in the geodesic construction or the Dymaxion map, which enabled the 3D world to be presented in a 2D form with a minimum of distortion. This map enabled a better understanding of our \'home\' while being a practical tool for illustrating distances and interrelationships on our planet plausibly and making them easier to understand. It also makes issues relating to the distribution of resources easier to address. This series of lectures and workshops engages critically with the so-called Dymaxion map - an arena for geomapping and games theory, a tool for conveying information on the givens and current state of our planet.
