Syllabus would include The Dome Book and The Dome Book 2. Magazine
called Dome. Journal of Space Structures (spendy subscriptions for
the hard core). Home Fried Domes another resource. Ikosa Kit in
museum gift shops, and Tensegritoy, same shops, are good modeling
kits. Who makes all those dome jungle gyms for elementary school
campuses around the country I wonder?

Online resources I'm less versed in. If you've got World Wide Web,
then check out http://www.futuro.usp.br/rod/text/buckminster_fuller.html
