Where Vermont and Modernism meet.
Eric and Jen started Vermodernist in 2010 after moving to Vermont from NYC. They have since moved on from VT to Chicago, and Devin Colman, a VT-based modernism scholar and aficionado has taken the reigns.
The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller
The fantastically-named thinker, designer, architect and author R. Buckminster Fuller came up with some of the most intriguing ideas of the 20th century, including the geodesic dome. In fact, in 1979-1980 Fuller was a proponent of building a giant dome over the City of Winooski. Obviously, it was never built but it's fun to read about: The Golden Onion Dome.
