An impressive yet informal hand drawing of a geodesic sphere by Richard Buckminster Fuller late in his multi disciplined career as an architect, designer, inventor, writer, philosopher, and futurist. In 1962, Buckminster Fuller invented this radical and revolutionary structure, imposed as a “giant, 200-foot diameter... miniature earth - the most accurate global representation of our planet ever to be realized.”

The interconnected parts of this drawing are like a model for his ideal society echoing the “utilitarianism of Jeremy Bentham and interpreting it through technological and ecological means.”

Intended as a gift to his daughter, the drawing is signed, dated and inscribed 'To Allegra, August 28, 1975 / Sunset, Maine’.
