Design Science Symposium

November 2011

In one of Buckminster Fuller’s most audacious claims, he proposed that “Nature’s Coordinate System” could be understood by investigating the closest packing of spheres and a complex of related geometrical structures. The Design Science Symposium at RISD examined that claim and its many variations at a November 2011 event titled “Nature, Geometry, and the Symmetry of Space: Tetrahedron Discovers Itself and Universe.”

RISD’s Synergetics Collaborative and Edna Lawrence Nature Lab presented the Third Biennial Design Science Symposium: an invitation to educators, makers and thinkers to explore design, nature, and problem-solving, as well as discuss strategies for how the world might be constructed to work for 100% of humanity.
