Radical Curiosity: In the Orbit of Buckminster Fuller by the ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands (22 Jan - 10 Jul, 2022) is a journey through the universe of an unclassifiable investigator, inventor and visionary. Buckminster Fuller worked across multiple disciplines including art, architecture, design, engineering, metaphysics, mathematics and education. Ahead of his time, he devised a way to combine design and science with a mission to change the world, to make our planet work at 100% of its capacity for 100% of the population, in cooperation, without causing harm. Fuller foresaw the many global crises humanity faced during his lifetime and he worked tirelessly to guide us as ‘passenger-caretakers' in what he called “our spaceship Earth”.
Fuller’s collaborations with some of the 20th century’s major creators, thinkers, architects and artists - including Moshe Safdie - has continued to inspire contemporary innovations across multiple disciplines. In an interview contribution to the exhibit, Safdie describes meeting Fuller in 1967 when Bucky was building the Montreal Biosphere for Expo'67. He also describes Fuller's 'lightness of being' approach to architecture and how this continues to be one of the key inspirations in his work.
