The Synergetics Collaborative and The Edna Lawrence Nature Lab at
Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) have organized Biennial Design
Science Symposia at RISD since 2007. These symposia explore the field of
Design Science and provide an interactive meeting of makers, thinkers,
practitioners and educators. We strive to keep the work of R. Buckminster
Fuller current, relevant, and applied. Fuller's design approach as
"comprehensive anticipatory design science" combines an emphasis
on individual initiative and integrity with whole systems thinking,
scientific rigor and faithful reliance on nature's underlying principles.

The most important fact about Spaceship Earth:
an instruction manual didn't come with it.
--- R. Buckminster Fuller
