Thinking of Bucky- Just listened to another amazing 99% Invisible podcast on Buckminster Fuller and a dome he has in Woods Hole (who knew?). More here, but it led me to remember my favorite Bucky creation: the dymaxion maps! In searching for different ways to understand our lovely planet, Buckminster Fuller faceted it’s shape, not unlike his geodesic domes, and unfolded the pieces into new, truthful, yet different maps. The result is amazing. I love ‘one continent’ and ‘one ocean,’ the two maps over on the left (the big map is also one continent). 
The inspirational audio for the curious, thank you 99% Invisible.
