Bucky and Rusty. The Geoship Founding Fathers. Bioceramic domes combine the geometry/math of Buckminster (Bucky) Fuller with the material science of Rustum (Rusty) Roy. Bucky was a legendary American polymath and future architect. He invented Synergetic Mathematics and introduced the geodesic dome into mass awareness. Rusty was a legendary professor of material science with a focus on crystal chemistry. He often reminded his students that technology often precedes scientific theory.
Our social purpose is to create tools for human communities to reconnect with the natural world. The dominant models of home and community development are based upon templates designed to meet the needs of a radically different era. Our entire civilization is built upon a dualistic world-view that pits people against each other and disconnects us from the natural world. Human consciousness is evolving from this dualistic reality to one of connection and interdependence.
Bioceramic Dome Advantages. Bioceramic dome technology enables a new level of success in architecture. The current construction industry uses four primary material families – wood, metal, concrete, and organic polymers (plastics). Now we have a fifth family. Chemically Bonded Ceramics (bioceramics) are a new class of geopolymers that are enabling cascades of innovation in construction.
Resilient Zero Carbon Homebuilding. Buckminster Fuller thought of the Earth as a spaceship, and mankind as the sensing apparatus. Because humans have the unique ability to detect when systems are damaged, make repairs, and reestablish harmony onboard our planetary vessel. Building construction and operation accounts for approximately 40% of global energy demand.
