R. Buckminster Fuller's design and architectural work is frequently described as being "inspired by nature". However, to date there has been little investigation of his claim. What was Fuller's understanding of "nature" and how did it affect the conception, production and presentation of his work? This thesis attempts to characterize R. Buckminster Fuller's understanding of nature, which will be called a model of nature, and to trace its impact upon his work over the course of his career using an interdisciplinary historical approach.
