Dymaxion house

The Dymaxion House was a futuristic dwelling invented by the architect and practical philosopher R. Buckminister Fuller. 

In 1920, Fuller wished to build a sustainable autonomous single family dwelling, the living machine of the future. Although never built, the Dymaxion’s design displayed forward-thinking and influential innovations in prefabrication and sustainability.

The hexagonal house was an earthquake and storm resistant structure, supported by a central pole from which cables would be suspended, allowing the outer walls to be non-bearing.

The design also shows wind turbines on the roof and an extensive system of cisterns to collect and recycle water. For the bathing unit Fuller patented the “Dymaxion Bathroom” – a shower that required only one cup of hot water, and a toilet that consumed no water at all.
