Bucky's Dome

I crashed a party yesterday. I love crashing parties, but that's besides the point. The party was in Carbondale on the corner of Forest and Cherry Streets at what was once the residence of R. Buckminster Fuller.  You've seen his designs and inventions, even if you've never realized it before.  His most recognizable contribution is the geodesic dome, which is the design of this house where he lived from 1960-1972.  This week marked the 50th anniversary of the house, and many events around town centered on it. I noticed a reception at the house yesterday, so I thought I'd poke my head in. This view is the living room and loft of the house. As you can see, its still undergoing some renovation.
