Bernard Kirschenbaum (1924-2016) was a student of Cornell University’s Architecture program and later a graduate from the Chicago Institute of Design. During his time in Chicago, he attended a lecture by architect Buckminster Fuller, the revolutionary mind behind the geodesic dome. After years of personal research sparked by that lecture, Kirschenbaum built the first residential geodesic dome in 1958 in Connecticut for a fellow artist and his future wife.

Kirschenbaum continued with art. The first of many art shows was a collaboration with Boston artist Tamara Melcher. Kirschenbaum designed a poster with a blue and orange geodesic pattern for this collaborative art show which was on exhibit at the Park Place Gallery in New York from December 1966 to January 1967.
