The Dymaxion Map is Buckminster Fuller’s cartographic projection that reveals the Earth as one island and one ocean. Unlike the familiar Mercator projection, it minimizes visual distortion of the relative shapes and sizes of the land areas without splitting the continents.
The Dymaxion Map also known as the Fuller Projection, depicts the Earth as one island and one ocean. Unlike the familiar Mercator Projection, the Fuller Projection minimizes visual distortion of the relative shapes and sizes of the land areas without splitting the continents.
In its 2-D form as shown on the T-shirt, it is an unfolded icosahedron, a shape comprising 20 equilateral triangles.
Fuller believed that visualizing the whole planet with greater accuracy would be essential for equipping humanity to address the complex challenges facing humanity’s common future aboard Spaceship Earth.
The Buckminster Fuller Institute (BFI) is dedicated to Fuller’s dictim: “To make the world work for 100% of humanity.” Our programs cultivate and support projects that embody comprehensive approaches to solving the world’s most pressing problems.
We cannot do this work without the support of our network. Consider buying some T-shirts today for your friends and family! All proceeds go directly to BFI’s programming.
