Discipline: Communication

Dymaxion Car was the automotive future as envisioned by US inventor and architect Buckminster Fuller. A three-wheeler, steered by a single rear wheel, it could do a U-turn in its own length. This bilingual publication, designed for limited-edition book publishers Ivorypress, traces the history of this automotive icon and Foster’s authentic creation of a brand-new Dymaxion. From historic sources to the latest construction drawings, the book presents a wealth of material and offers the reader insights into the two-year manufacturing process.
