(Dymaxion = Dynamic + Maximum + Tension)

Map based on projections created by Buckminster Fuller, distinguished mathematician, inventor and 20th century visionary.

The map began as a sketch, "The One-Town World" in 1927. "By 1954, after working on the map for several decades," Fuller finally had a "satisfactory deck plan of the six and one half sextillion tons Spaceship Earth."
