May 25th, Bristol, RI:
The 24 foot dome has undergone extensive restorations in an effort to return the dome to its original
The dome is a convergence of Fuller's most advanced thinking with regard to synergetic geometry,
advanced structural systems, and the very contemporary notion of a dwelling machine.
Fuller intended the iconic structure to “produce a beautiful, fully equipped air-deliverable house that
weighs and costs about as much as a good automobile. Not only will it be highly efficient in its use of
energy and materials, it also will be capable of harvesting incoming light and wind energies.”
The Fly's Eye dome will be installed during Art Basel I Miami Beach and Design Miami in December
and for inclusion in the contemporary art and design collection of Craig Robins, CEO and President of
Dacra, Miami. Links to press are below the photos.
