La impactante belleza de la Arquitectura Europea por la noche (timelapse) NIGHTVISION on Vimeo

Nightvision is a celebration of the brilliance and diversity of architecture found across Europe. Over the course of three months I journeyed with a friend through 36 cities in 21 countries with the ambition of capturing some of the greatest European structures in a new and unique way. Comprised of thousands of carefully taken photographs, strung together and stabilized in post-production, Nightvision aims to inspire appreciation for these man-made landmarks.

Paper City on Vimeo – Extraordinaria animación con modelos en papel

The streets are paved with paper. This delicate animation follows the charming rise and fold of a fragile metropolis.

Captured by an unseen helicopter, the narrative unfolds through winding roads, erupting forests and emerging mountains.

Paper City grows in one fluid take, with skyscrapers rising from the page – only to crumble, wrinkle and gently crease back into the ground.

Richard Buckminster Fuller, aka “Bucky” – Wikipedia

Increíble pero cierto: el Maestro Buckminster Fuller nos legó en vídeo, a mediados de los setentas, todo lo que el sabía… acerca de temáticas tan amplias como las que el solía abordar:  Arquitectura, Diseño, Filosofía, Educación, matemáticas, geometría, cartografía, economía, historia, estructuras, industria, vivienda e ingeniería.

Para los millares de fanáticos de la mítica serie “Cosmos” del ya desaparecido Carl Sagan, este tipo de presentaciones resultará familiar (podría ser, ciertamente, el apreciado “Bucky”, su precursor), haciendo buen uso de los recursos y efectos audiovisuales disponibles al momento. Son, en total, 42 horas de sabiduría compartidas por un Maestro que se muestra generoso al compartir su conocimiento.

Gracias al prodigioso Internet Archive y al omnipresente YouTube podemos descargar este valiosísimo material en vídeo o disfrutarlo en línea.

During the last two weeks of January 1975 Buckminster Fuller gave an extraordinary series of lectures concerning his entire life’s work. These thinking out loud lectures span 42 hours and examine in depth all of Fuller’s major inventions and discoveries from the 1927 Dymaxion house, car and bathroom, through the Wichita House, geodesic domes, and tensegrity structures, as well as the contents of Synergetics. Autobiographical in parts, Fuller recounts his own personal history in the context of the history of science and industrialization. The stories behind his Dymaxion car, geodesic domes, World Game and integration of science and humanism are lucidly communicated with continuous reference to his synergetic geometry. Permeating the entire series is his unique comprehensive design approach to solving the problems of the world. Some of the topics Fuller covered in this wide ranging discourse include: architecture, design, philosophy, education, mathematics, geometry, cartography, economics, history, structure, industry, housing and engineering.

Everything I Know: 42 Hours of Buckminster Fuller’s Visionary Lectures Free Online (1975) – Open Culture

Think of the name Buckminster Fuller, and you may think of a few oddities of mid-twentieth-century design for living: the Dymaxion House, the Dymaxion Car, the geodesic dome. But these artifacts represent only a small fragment of Fuller’s life and work as a self-styled “comprehensive anticipatory design scientist.” In his decades-long project of developing and furthering his worldview — an elaborate humanitarian framework involving resource conservation, applied geometry, and neologisms like “tensegrity,” “ephemeralization,” and “omni-interaccommodative” — the man wrote over 30 books, registered 28 United States patents, and kept a diary documenting his every fifteen minutes. These achievements and others have made Fuller the subject of at least four documentaries and numerous books, articles, and papers, but now you can hear all about his thoughts, acts, experiences, and times straight from the source in the 42-hour lecture series Everything I Know, available to download at the Internet Archive. Though you’d perhaps expect it of someone whose journals stretch to 270 feet of solid paper, he could really talk.

(The Buckminster Fuller archive has also made transcripts of Everything I Know — “minimally edited and maximally Fuller” — freely available.)
