This book is a tribute to the futuristic vehicle designed by the visionary and forward-thinking Richard Buckminster Fuller in the 1930s. The Dymaxion Car was just one of the many accomplishments of this architect, philosopher, mathematician, cartographer, engineer and designer. Precursor of his time, his innovations today still surprise by the boldness and originality of his thought. Although Bucky Fuller is most remembered for the beauty of his geodesic domes, the book “Dymaxion Car Buckminster Fuller” is a tribute to the defence of sustainability through the use of technology, design and innovative materials, as was his Dymaxion car. It was a creation, in Fuller s words, not motivated by business and with which I learned a huge amount of amazing things that changed many of the major strategies in automotive engineering . This book relates the story of the three Dymaxion cars built by Fuller between 1933 and 1934 and chronicles the development of Dymaxion # 4, produced by Norman Foster, launched on the road in 2010.
