A short collection of "official" materials regarding Buckminster Fuller’s Dymaxion concept. Which actually killed a bloke.
DYnamic — MAXimum – tensION
At the heart of Buckminster Fuller’s Dymaxion concept is the idea that rational action in a rational world demands the most efficient overall performance per unit of input. His Dymaxion structures, then are those that yield the greatest possible efficiency in terms of available technology.
In this section you will find resources and information about some of Fuller’s most compelling applications of this set of criteria including the Dymaxion House, car, bathroom, etc.
As failed futures go, this one always struck me as particularly sad.
