The meaning of this term can be inferred from these words in the Introduction to "Critical Path" (p.xxv):

"The essence of livingry is human-life advantaging and environment-controlling. With the highest aeronautical and engineering facilities of the world redirected from weaponry to livingry production, all humanity would have the option of becoming enduringly successful."

The concept of livingry is the generality at whose level we can comprehend Fuller's inventions and designs.

Another strategic concept relevant at this level is encapsulated in Fuller's slogan: "Reform The Environment".

From this point we can continue with various homes and domes designed by Fuller, or look at architecture, or his plans for megastructures, or his inventions. See also Shelter.
