With all of the eco-conscious new developments popping up everywhere, let’s hope that there are a few throwbacks to the past…
All you would have to do is to take a jump back to the ’60s to check out some serious chill spots. I picked this selection off of “Cool Hunting”, check out the review for ‘Spaced Out’ here.
“Spaced Out: Radical Environments of the Psychedelic Sixties” explores the crash pads, hippie communes, infinity machines and other far-out dwellings of the time period. I picked this one off the jump.
Be sure to heck out some of the pics on that Cool Hunting post. I was fortunate to check out a few of these type of places around Santa Cruz, and in the back of my mind, I have the dream of living in one of these dwellings with a Japanese Miyagi-style garden in the back…The book explores womblike coves, geodesic domes, theater domes, and isolation chambers for expanding consciousness…Drippy candles, magic circles, Whaaattt! “If you build it, he will come.”
Here’s the ‘Spaced Out’ site that accompanies the site. Check it out. They have some great excerpts as well. I’m on this one for a great summer coffee-table read, and I’ll be back with a review.
