Dymaxion House

I was just looking at the LoftCube again and my friend Brian mentioned the Dymaxion House, a pre-fab house designed and built by Buckminster Fuller in 1946.

Buckminster Fuller designed his igloo-shaped Dymaxion House so it could be shipped to buyers in a can-shaped container.
   None of the parts weighed more than 10 pounds and the cost was about $6,500.

Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn is preparing to open an exhibit of the house designed to withstand tornadoes.
