GEOMETRICA PRESENTATION SERIES
Presented to Jay Baldwin
November 2, 2003
Jay Baldwin is a teacher, author, designer, and former technology editor for the Whole Earth Catalogue and the Whole Earth Review. He is known variously as both "Design Scientist " and "Design Outlaw," pioneering new intersections between design, technology, nature and architecture. He worked with Buckminster Fuller in the 1970s on numerous geodesic domes and redefined lightweight biosensitive domes with his invention of the "Pillow Dome." He also led the team that deconstructed Fuller's first 1945 prototype for mass-produced housing, "The Wichita House," now on display at Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village in Dearborn Michigan. Baldwin is the author of one of the most richly visual, pragmatic and popular introductions to Fuller's work in his 1996 book "BuckyWorks." He teaches design at California College of Arts and Crafts in San Francisco and California State College in Sonoma and lectures on Design Science. This Porcelainia vessel, based on the icosahedron, Fuller's "pure" starting point for geodesics, is dedicated to Jay Baldwin's contributions to geodesics and Design Science.
