A Community Dwelling Machine for 125,000

Old Man River City was to be a single community dwelling machine for 125,000 humans. It was designed by a team of architects led by Buckminster Fuller. The design process began in 1971, and the following description is excerpted from the book Critical Path published in 1981. Fuller’s mission was to: “To make the world work in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone.”  (11/24/02)
