“Of course, our failures are a consequence of many factors, but possibly one of the most important is the fact that society operates on the theory that specialization is the key to success, not realizing that specialization precludes comprehensive thinking.”
- R. Buckminster Fuller, architect & engineer (1895-1983)
Our inspiration lies in a 1967 visit to the world’s fair by Robert E. Rose, whose calling as a homebuilder, developer and craftsman was transformed by Buckminster Fuller’s iconic geodesic dome. Rose returned to Connecticut with a new vision for construction; one that fully considered a structure’s relationship to people and to the land. Since 1992, Kathleen Rose has continued her father’s vision by offering a wide variety of services that bring together real estate market, land use and economic development expertise and a commitment to balancing the economic, environmental and social needs of every client, with one mission: To assist all communities we serve in becoming healthier and happier places.
