R. Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller captured the world’s imagination with designs like the geodesic dome, but perhaps his greatest contribution was the way he thought. As a “design scientist,” he sought innovation that benefits the greatest number of people using the least amount of resources. Today’s disruptive designers are guided by the same principles, uniting science and design for a sustainable future. Join Academy Award winner Ellen Burstyn, a friend of Bucky’s, for a special advance screening of The House of Tomorrow, telling Bucky’s incredible story through two rebel teens trying to become punk gods. Following the film, moderator John Hockenberry, Ms. Burstyn, director Peter Livolsi, and winners of the prestigious “Buckminister Challenge," will discuss how Bucky’s limitless thinking is just what we need today.
