bucky fuller & spaceship earth is the title of a new exhibition looking at the work of buckminster fuller being held at ivorypress art + books in madrid. the show is running from september 1 to october 30 and is curated by norman foster and luis fernández-galiano. the exhibition features drawings and models including the recently completed recreation of the dymaxion car. foster worked with fuller for the last 12 years of his life and explains that fuller  ‘had a profound influence on my own work and thinking’. the new dymaxion car was commissioned by foster based on fuller’s own drawings and prototypes. the prototype was built in east sussex by the car restoration company crosthwaite & gardiner.
