Dymaxion House

The Dymaxion House was developed by inventor and architect Buckminster Fuller to address several perceived shortcomings with existing homebuilding techniques. Fuller designed several versions of the house at different times — all of them factory manufactured kits, assembled on site, intended to be suitable for any site or environment and to use resources efficiently. A key design consideration of the design was ease of shipment and assembly.

As he did when naming many of his inventions, Fuller used a portmanteau of the words dynamic, maximum, and tension to arrive at the term Dymaxion.
