"The Dymaxion House, a six-sided shelter suspended from a central steel mast, is one of Bucky Fuller’s most mesmerizing creations. It was conceived as a purely technological solution to a fundamental human problem, the need for affordable shelter. But a community of Dymaxion houses clad in shiny stainless steel skins and laid out along a suburban cul de sac suggests the eerie correlation between the endlessly repetitive suburban subdivisions of postwar America and a military barracks." — from New York Times slide show
