Housing conference, and the overall idea in a nutshell.



I'm trying to find out where this is going to be held. Sounds very good.

 The Official Event of the Third MillenniumTM 

A challenge to the world leaders in business and 
industry to move housing out of the Stone Age and 
into the Space Age of industrial design, production, 
and deployment. 

During his early career in the building industry, 
Buckminster Fuller said that there had not been a 
major improvement in housing design in over 5,000 
years. Since that statement was made, science and 
technology has dramatically changed, but our housing 
remains essentially the same. Buckminster Fuller called 

housing the industry that industry forgot. His design 
revolution would first focus on housing. He said that 
humanity must quickly make the transition from our 
primitive outdated building construction practices to 
the millions-per-day mass-production of lightweight, 
low-cost, air-deliverable, energy-harvesting, 
energy-conserving dwelling machines, and successfully 
rehouse humanity before the 21st century. 

The rapid deployment of low-cost, mass-produced, 
resource efficient, Space Age dwelling machines is the 
most critical element necessary to provide the energy 
and housing needs of the world's growing population, 
decrease the consumption of natural resources, and 
avoid a growing humanitarian and environmental crisis. 

Buckminster Fuller found that the housing industry is 
the most resistant of all industries to adopting new 
innovations. The global environment can no longer 
support a humanity that lives in a wasteful and 
inefficient housing design that literally dates back 
5,000 years to the Neolithic Stone Age. 

During his lifetime, Buckminster Fuller's greatest 
failure was his failure to achieve the mass production 
of his dwelling machines. If humanity fails to soon 
implement a Space Age, resource efficient housing 
industry, it will be humankind's greatest failure. 

'Set your binoculars on the rehousing of 4-billion 
humans in one decade, or else...' -- Buckminster Fuller

 construction 
 at the end of the 20th century -- 
 a weak, inefficient structure that can no longer 
 withstand the crushing weight 
 of the world's growing population.

be to this house.'
