Buckminster Fuller Institute (BFI)

Critical Path project

Good books to start with: Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth (perhaps most famous, a relevant quick-reading paperback), Utopia or Oblivion: The Prospects for Humanity (good read, relevant paperback), Critical Path, Buckminster Fuller’s Universe: His Life and Work, And It Came to Pass - Not to Stay (poetry), Grunch of Giants (classic about transnational corporations, money, profits and national sovereignty), Synergetics (the “big red book,” ultimately his masterwork). Buckminster Fuller Speaks His Mind (rare multi-disk speaking engagements now on MP3 download), World of Buckminster Fuller (old VHS film features Indira Gandhi and others), The Clock is Stopping: The Human Scenario (classic talks from Smithsonian Folkways, previously rare and out of print, now on mp3 with instant download), Bucky Works : Buckminster Fuller’s Ideas for Today (Jay Baldwin’s late-90s update, a great first intro), Buckminster Fuller: The Lost Interviews (incredible DVD set), Guinea Pig B: The 56 Year Experiment (new!), Buckminster Fuller: Starting with the Universe (illustrated art book from the Whitney Museum of Art)
