Visionary inventor Buckminster Fuller never lived in the Bay Area, but evidence of his influence can be found in many innovative, environmentally conscious projects here. The SFMOMA's new architecture and design exhibition, "The Utopian Impulse: Buckminster Fuller and the Bay Area," explores Fuller's work as well as a diverse set of local projects that drew inspiration from it.
