SELECTED IDEAS OF BUCKMINSTER FULLER
TRIANGLES: 3-WAY WEAVE DOMES
TENSION INTEGRITY (TENSEGRITY) GEODESIC STRUCTURES
Fuller found ways to minimize the weight & cost of structures by maximizing the tension & minimizing the compression elements.
He called it tension integrity or "tensegrity".
Using these techniques it is possible to build structures of unlimited size!
