Abstract
Fuller explicitly connects his career with a childhood full of experiences marked by a merger between the biological and the cultural, constituting a major source of imagery, handled over his whole life. Childhood mobile games like the rope, kyte, swing, wheel, or balloon, all characterized by their dynamic condition, serve as narrative vehicles and provide a context to relate childhood, science and architectural design through an universal approach. We pose three elementary cathegories, in order to trace a genealogy of primary technical objects which operate under tension and mobility principles. Rescued experiences, notions and attitudes from Fuller?s childhood memories, refer to the experience of tension which, in clear contrast with traditional structural methods, which perpetuate the Euclidean, the stable, the massive and the compressive, promote multipolar, dynamic en the ephimeral.
