K. Michael Hays (Arch 1976) presented drawings and models from the Buckminster Fuller archive that demonstrate his understanding of the geometrical foundation of natural and designed phenomena. Presented on October 29, 2008, in the Architecture Auditorium.

Michael Hays has played a central role in the advancement of architectural theory and the role of the architect as cultural critic. As editor of Assemblage and author of numerous books, he has focused attention on the work of Hannes Meyer, Ludwig Hilberseimer and Mies van der Rohe; as well as Peter Eisenman, Machado & Silvetti and the late John Hejduk. He is the Eliot Noyes Professor of Architectural Theory at Harvard University and the first curator of architecture at the Whitney Museum of American Art where he directed the recent exhibition on Buckminster Fuller.
