Asheville Design Science Lab

The Design Science Lab is a joint project of the Buckminster Fuller Institute, and BigPictureSmallWorld. The Asheville Design Science Lab is the first regional offering of this type of program.

The Lab will teach participants how to apply Buckminster Fuller’s design science methodology for developing strategies to address local and global problems.

A key learning experience of this program for those who choose to focus on regional issues will be a systems – based perspective of the relationship between the issues facing the Southern Appalachian region and the global problems affecting us all. Solutions developed to address the challenges facing the region will be viewed as models for global application.
