Video: The Curators discuss Buckminster Fuller: Starting with the Universe

In this Whitney Focus video, exhibition co-curators Dana Miller and Michael Hays discuss Buckminster Fuller: Starting with the Universe. Utilizing his doing “more with less” credo, Fuller’s designs endeavored to benefit the largest portion of humanity while consuming the minimum amount of the earth’s resources. This video presents four examples of Fuller’s integrated approach to the design and technology of housing, transportation, and cartography—the Dymaxion House, ca. 1930, Dymaxion Transport Vehicle, ca.1933,Wichita House, ca. 1945, and The Fuller Projection Map, ca. 1943.
