Buckminster Fuller’s Fly’s Eye Dome Restoration: Goetz Composites

Buckminster Fuller’s Fly’s Eye Dome Restoration: Goetz Composites | ETFE | Scoop.it

Racing boat builder Goetz Composites has crafted many icons of the sea, including ten America’s Cup boats. Now, the company is trying its hand at architectural icons. Several months ago, Goetz began the restoration of Buckminster Fuller’s Fly’s Eye Dome, one of only three existing prototypes of the prefabricated shelters that the designer patented in 1965. The piece, a 24-foot-wide fiberglass shell with Plexiglas eyes, had been neglected for years and arrived at Goetz’s Bristol, Rhode Island, headquarters with chipped corners, peeling paint, and a patina of mold.

Design Science

Design Science | ETFE | Scoop.it

Comprehensive, anticipatory science is problem-solving approached defined by R. Buckminster Fuller as “the effective application of the principles of science to the conscious design of our total environment in order to help make the Earth’s finite resources meet the needs of all of humanity without disrupting the ecological processes of the planet.”

Buckminster Fuller's Design For The Stars - Forbes

Buckminster Fuller's Design For The Stars - Forbes | ETFE | Scoop.it

In this April 18 1979 photo, R. Buckminster Fuller holds up one of his inventions, a tensegrity sphere. The structure, made of rods and cables, was proposed as the basis for floating habitats known as Spherical Tensegrity Atmospheric Research Stations (or “STARS”).

 

Fuller envisioned giant versions of the structure that were so light and strong that when they were filled with hot air, they’d float above the Earth, supporting stations up to a mile in diameter.
