His work is a revelation and fascination; it stems from Bucky Fuller's futurism and seems to have influenced many contemporary architectural projects. But see for yourself, the 2006 film, Future by Design by William Gazecki is a documentary about Fresco's life and output. (get DVD here; trailer here and here )
Anyone who loves vintage World's Fair futurism, as I do, Utopian conceptualizing and optimistic urban planning will enjoy Fresco's work and outlook.
He is a self-educated structural designer, industrial designer, philosopher of science, concept artist, educator, and futurist, with focus on philosophy, science, and engineering.
