Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking

Located at the Hammer Museum

Buckminster Fuller—the visionary, architect, author, mathematician, and inventor of geodesic domes—sought to discover nature’s building principles. This workshop introduces synergetics, a comprehensive energetic geometry system developed by Fuller, through demonstrations and hands-on model building. Materials will be provided.  

Facilitated by inventor, writer, producer, and educator, Kurt Przybilla. Kurt invented Tetra Tops®, the world’s first spinning top with more than one axis of spin. Inspired by the works of Buckminster Fuller, Tetra Tops® have been featured in The New York TimesPopular ScienceBaby EinsteinChild and Discover Magazine, and the Smithsonian Institute. He is co-creator of the Molecularium Project at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute where he produced and co-wrote the 3D animated film Molecules to the MAX!, the award winning digital dome feature Molecularium, and a game-based online theme park to teach kids about atoms and molecules NanoSpace.
