If you've passed through the Design District in the last week, you probably noticed a seemingly alien spacecraft in an open field at 39th Street and First Court.
Dubbed the Fly's Eye Dome, the geodesic structure is not from outer space but from the mental cosmos of one Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983), a self-described "comprehensive anticipatory design scientist" who is the focus of Design Miami's satellite exhibition, Architecting The Future.
