    Quizzical Pursuit
    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Created by Dave Guadagni

     

    Architecture Puzzler #135

    Designed to be dismantled, packed into a tube, and taken along when the family moved, the Dymaxion House (1947) was described as a "jaunty little flying saucer with a fin on top." Only two prototypes of the 1,075-square-foot (100-square-meter) house were ever built. The sole survivor is now owned by the Henry Ford Museum. Who was the designer and about how much did the house weigh?
