Dymaxion House

Primarily known for his advancement of the Geodesic Dome, Buckminster Fuller developed the radical Dymaxion House in 1946. To highlight the Dymaxion house Hilferty created a post-WWII aircraft manufacturing plant. Graphic posters, collaged bulletin boards, and newsreel footage set the tone of the 1940s. Mechanical interactive units invite visitors to record impressions about the practicality of living in a round house. Computer interactives allow visitors to access information about Buckminster Fuller and the Museum’s conservation of this unique artifact.
