It has been our intention since we started the Fuller Challenge Program to increase the number of awards we are able to confer each year. Last year, in partnership with Interface, we conferred a special recognition prize to the Waterbank Schools project in Laikipia, Kenya.
Join BFI to catalyze the collective intelligence required to address the unprecedented challenges before us by partnering with us as we grow our capacity for impact through a financial contribution or by becoming a card-carrying Member of the BFI community.

The Buckminster Fuller Institute's new Fly's Eye Dome has been installed in the Design District in Miami. It is a significantly evolved FED structure commissioned specifically for the site by Craig Robins, Miami developer and international contemporary art and design collector.
