#World Map Wednesday
This world map comes from the R. Buckminster Fuller Fuller Projection, specifically the Raleigh Edition showing the airocean world. It was published in 1954 and was made by Fuller and Shoji Sadao. 
The Dymaxion representation of the globe is designed to show Earth's continents with minimum distortion.
050 J-1954

A Fuller Dymaxion, built in 1933 appears near the end of Season 4 of The Venture Bros. Three prototypes were built, but only one survived, with replicas built in 2010 and 2015.

Dymaxion House part 1
The final design of the Dymaxion house used a central vertical stainless-steel strut on a single foundation. Structures similar to the spokes of a bicycle-wheel hung down from this supporting the roof, while beams radiating out supported the floor. Wedge-shaped fans of sheet metal aluminum formed the roof, ceiling and floor. Each structure was assembled at ground level and then winched up the strut. The Dymaxion house represented the first conscious effort to build an autonomous building in the 20th century.
It was a prototype proposed to use a packaging toilet, water storage and a convection-driven ventilator built into the roof. It was designed for the stormy areas of the world: temperate oceanic islands, and the Great Plains of North America, South America and Eurasia. In most modern houses, laundry, showers and commodes are the major water uses, with drinking, cooking and dish-washing consuming less than 20 liters per day. The Dymaxion house was intended to reduce water use by a greywater system, a packaging commode, and a "fogger" to replace showers. The fogger was based on efficient compressed-air and water degreasers, but with much smaller water particles to make it comfortable.
Without having the packaging toilet, the Dymaxion is very environmentally friendly, easily assembled, and sturdy.
