GSAPP World Game Exhibition

Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) opened an exhibition on R. Buckminster Fuller’s World Game at the Arthur Ross Gallery: “Information Fall-Out: Buckminster Fuller’s World Game”.

The opening began with a symposium on September 18th, in which the following scholars, architects, and partners and collaborators of Fuller discussed the significance of World Game: Eva Díaz, Medard Gabel, James Graham, Ed Hauben, Laura Kurgan, Yates McKee, Shoji Sadao, Felicity Scott, Mark Wasiuta, Mark Wigley, and Gene Youngblood. That evening, a reception was held at 7:00pm.

Assembling documents related to various iterations of the World Game conceived, proposed and played from 1964 to 1982 and material from the World Resources Inventory, the exhibition examines the World Game as an experimental pedagogical project, as a system for environmental information, and as a process of resource administration.

The exhibition can be viewed until October 24.

Opening Hours: Tuesday–Saturday, 12–6 pm
