3 cheers 4 Bucky Fuller Submitted by john switzer June 21st, 2011 7 blocks from mi casa. I am not kidding when I say tearing this down was on the table for a spell. Thanks goodness it was spared. And yes,its Golden Kitsch-o liciousness. Tell Will it is full of giant golden bees! :D
I love Bucky’s domes. He was SO ahead of his time and what he created was so timeless.
As it’s so close to su casa can you shoot a few more detail shots of it?
I had no idea these came in gold.
There was one here in Baton Rouge just like it tho not painted gold. And yes, they did tear that one down a few years ago even though it’s significance was well known, ah progress. As i recall, the one here in BR was one of very few Bucky domes left, so consider yourself fortunate that the one in your area hasn’t been torn down yet.
John where is that geodesic dome?
