Best known as the inventor of the geodesic dome, Richard Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) used multiple tetrahedrons (triangular pyramids) to create the geodesic dome. It was the first building that could sustain its own weight regardless of size. A microprinted “USPS” can be found in the lower left part of the stamp.
