On May 25, 1961, President John F. Kennedy made an historic speech in which he stated:
For Reuse of building materials to expand in the United States and North America, the size of projects that can incorporate these materials needs to be expanded.
You may know I am a fan of R. Buckminster Fuller. He was an Architect and inventor of the geodesic dome. My Junior high school architectural drafting teacher was friends with him. He called him, “Bucky."
Greetings to all of you in the building materials reuse world who are prone through personal propensity to the wonky side of this industry. I am, too. I am looking at trends, tools, opportunities, and connection points outside of the existing model of recaptured building materials distribution into larger potential.
