“Bucky was a true master of technology, in the tradition of heroes such as Eiffel or Paxton. His many innovations – from the Dymaxion House to the Geodesic dome – still surprise one with the audacity of their thinking. Yet, while his public image may have been one of the cool technocrat, nothing could have been further from the truth. What was never discussed was his deeply spiritual dimension. For me, Bucky was the very essence of a moral conscience, forever warning about the fragility of the planet and man’s responsibility to protect it. He was one of those rare individuals who fundamentally influence the way that you come to view the world."
