As part of the architecture series that Ivorypress Art + Books holds every September and October, the company, in collaboration with Foster + Partners, is organising the Bucky Fuller & Spaceship Earth exhibition, the first of its kind in Spain on the American visionary, architect, designer, philosopher, mathematician and cartographer.
