The Fuller Dymaxion World Map: Minneapolis, Hub of the World for Trade, Business and Travel
"This fundamental fact is worth repetition and emphasis: If you look at my strip map of the world island, concentrating on the North American continent, the most central place you can find is in Minnesota!
"So I say that Minnesota should play a very large role in tomorrow’s swelling world traffic between America, Europe and Asia. It should be possible to establish an entirely new transportation system center in this state. Construction of the Experimental City will give you a perfect opportunity to provide the vital hub for this future transportation system."
- R. Buckminster Fuller, Minneapolis Star, December 7, 1967
Fuller was a creative engineer, architect, inventor, and futurist, famous for his geodesic buildings. In this article, Fuller explained how Minneapolis is the hub of the world in his dymaxion concept.
