Build a Dome for Bucky's Birthday!

Okay geodesic dome design aficionados. Here's your chance!

I got an e-mail today from the C. J. Fearnley, Executive Director of the Synergetics Collaborative, which is a non-profit dedicated to bringing together people interested in Buckminster Fuller's Synergetics.

At their 6th annual conference this summer, July 11-14 at SUNY in Oswego, New York, they are inviting designers to design a shelter that must include a geodesic dome for a family of your choosing and submit it.

Here is a poster with the entry requirements, and here is the information about the workshop. If your design wins, you can attend the four day workshop free!

Either way, check it out. A lot of big "Bucky" people will be there, so a great chance to learn more about his work and the ideas that have sprung from it.
