You’ll find the author's blog at BuckyIdeas.com. Please visit there to read about Buckminster Fuller's IDEAS for today and for news about upcoming events and books.FORM FOLLOWS IDEA examines the work and ideas of influential designers Ralph Ball and Maxine Naylor. Their reflections and propositions provide a refreshing and provocative approach to design, touching on issues such as craftsmanship, modernism, and the role of nature and commercialism in design. Ball and Naylor's work explores ideas of space beyond the physical object. Their concern with cultural and social values is manifest in the form and (dis)function of their designs and appropriations of everyday objects, such as chairs, lights and shelving. FORM FOLLOWS IDEA features their approach to these objects through cultural, ecological and visual narratives. As such, their book provides a playful yet critical re-evaluation of familiar forms and typologies.

"Rugged textured cable pipes ran over my head at a train station in New York, creating a trance-like, frightful pattern," says Gautam Kamat Bambolkar. "They ran from the edge of the entrance to an infinite end. It looked nothing less than a scary man-made cave." 1. Embrace abundance, not scarcity. Humans are falsely conditioned by the notion of scarcity promoted by Charles Darwin and Thomas Malthus. The idea of survival of the fittest sets up an us-versus-them mentality. If we believe there is not enough for all, overconsumption and greed are natural results. Only by embracing abundance and setting out to prove there is enough for all can we achieve Bucky’s overriding objective, “To make the world work for one hundred percent of all humanity in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological damage or harm to any individual.” In other words, whether we think we can or think we can’t, we are right.
world (and thereby undermine our democracy). "Last year, more than four hundred billion dollars were spent on philanthropy in the United States. This is nearly going beyond the government budget - excluding the budget for defension. " This is just one of the insights of the former New York Times columnist and writer Anand Giridharadas. He paints a picture of a parallel government: one that is not democratic, but that is run by the super-rich of this world. If rich people and companies avoid paying taxes as much as possible, but depicture the government as bureaucratic and then are taking credit when they open a new university building or hospital because their name is on it - what is left of our democracy? Giridharadas therefore advocates a return to the public interest through renewed cooperation within our democratic institutions. Because, that's how the writer rhetorically summarizes the problem: "Which rich person or company has done more for the elderly in the United States than social security?" "Which rich person or company has done more for health care for the poor than Medicaid?" "Which rich person or company has done more for women than the right to vote?" "Which rich person or company has done more for African Americans than the Votings Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act?" An interview with Anand Giridharadas about the super-rich and how they undermine democracy.
