SELECTED IDEAS OF BUCKMINSTER FULLER
ICOSAHEDRA
HOUSING: HIGH TECH DOME HOME

Fuller designed a portable, self-contained, spherical, geodesic dome home that captured renewable energy through wind turbines, solar panels, & methane generators fitted into various round openings.

Compressed air stored in the framework would power most appliances.

It would be earthquake resistant, could withstand winds of over 200 mph, & sell for about 10% the cost of conventional homes!
