A look into the future that never was
I loved those costumes!
When I was a kid I wanted to visit Epcot so badly. Never got there, it just seemed like another planet to a kid growing up in Ireland.
before rainbow imagery gave conservatives conniptions...
Who builds geodesic domes these days? The geodesic dome's inventor, Buckminster Fuller, still has a cult following. But that doesn't make much sense because his inventions haven't really worked well.
Mark Plus: have you seen the Eden project in England?
73 man asks,have you seen the Eden project in England?No. Judging from the website, it reminds me of the Climatron (a paleo-future neologism, if I've ever see one!) in St. Louis, which I have seen.In other contexts, geodesic domes just look increasingly dated.
BTW, I live about ten miles from Arcosanti, another moribund architectural experiment from the paleo-future era.
For someone into radical rethinking & 'arcology', Arcosanti's founder has an astoundingly mediocre apartment. Plastic lawn chairs?And the bell foundry. How very 60s to believe you can support a community by making bells which, no doubt, were symbolic of man's need to wake up.
I knew it! I know where the Teletubbies creator got the idea of putting creepiness on children show.
