The Last Dymaxion: Buckminster Fuller's Dream Restored

Monday, October 21, 2013 at 6:30pm

With Discussion by Filmmaker Noel Murphy

Cosponsored by Art, Art History & Design, MSU; Michigan State Historic Preservation Office; East Lansing Film Society; East Lansing Public Library

Buckminster Fuller was the grandfather of the modern green movement and gave us the world’s first "green" automobile, the Dymaxion…in 1933!! Amelia Earhart drove one of the three prototypes of the teardrop-shaped car which spun on three wheels and held a dozen people. Fuller also invented the Geodesic Dome, the world’s largest self-supporting structure, and revolutionized the practice of architecture worldwide by incorporating sustainability into his designs.

Please join us for a premier of this rough cut screening that will be shown with recent interviews added to four years worth or work.
