Buckminster Fuller (1895–1983) was an American architect,
systems theorist, author, designer and inventor. Fuller
published more than 30 books, coining or popularizing
terms such as "Spaceship Earth", ephemeralization, and
synergetic. He was awarded 28 United States patents and
many honorary doctorates. He spoke and wrote in a unique
style. He served in the U.S. Navy in WWI.
He was expelled from Harvard twice: first for spending all his money partying with a vaudeville troupe, and then, after having been readmitted, for his "irresponsibility and lack of interest."
Fuller was an early environmental activist, coined to mean "doing more with less,” and designed affordable, efficient housing.
