He was an American architect. He was born in 1895 and he died in 1983. He was very good at his work actually. There is a lot of literature written about his life and adventures. If you enjoy reading history, especially as it pertains to architecture, I suggest that you read one of the books on Buckminster Fuller's life. There is a lot out there to read, as I said above, and nothing is more valuable for increasing one's writing skills that the reading of quality literature.
