Buckminster Fuller Challenge

In 2009, the Buckminster Fuller Institute announced that PBR was among thirty-three outstanding international finalists for the prestigious Buckminster Fuller Challenge — an award for distinctive and timely design proposals for social, economic and environmental change and sustainability.

Finalists are providing workable solutions to some of the world’s most significant challenges including water scarcity, food supply, and energy consumption. We are honored to be included among others of this vanguard community.
