"What is important is the way man takes advantage of what he's learned and uses it for his fellow man. What we need is a test of the way he employs this information," R. Buckminister Fuller said in a lecture last night at Winthrop House.
Fuller was introduced to the crowd of "well over 200 by William H. Wainwright, associate professor of Architecture, who noted, "He's a very unconventional thinker. There is only one way to listen, that's to trip with Bucky and listen too."
Fuller, best known for his design of the geodeisic dome, spoke about himself, man's evolution and "an eternal, a priori design in which we can see the working of that evolution."
Noting the historical competition over means of transportation and technical design, Fuller concluded, "We've seen a basic acceleration of science--a third-power acceleration that was not expected it all. What we can expect is equally extraordinary. The question is, what can we do regarding our situation?"
