1. Answer this question: Who is the renowned American architect, author, designer, futurist, inventor and visionary best known for his geodesic domes, which can be seen as part of military radar stations, civic buildings, and exhibition attractions like the Spaceship Earth at Disney World’s Epcot Center in Florida?

Here are more clues:

He was born on July 2, 1895 in Milton, Massachusetts, and spent his youth in Bear Island off the coast of Maine, where he developed a natural propensity for design and construction.

Although he had little formal training, his talent and mechanical skills led him to teach at the Black Mountain College in North Carolina in the summers of 1948 and 1949, and serving as its summer institute director in 1949. There with the support of a group of professors and students, he began work on the project that would make him famous, and revolutionized the field of engineering — the lattice shell structure called the geodesic dome.
