Spaced Out

On Bruce Eisner's blog I found an interesting post about Spaced Out: Radical Environments of the Psychedelic Sixties, a book by Alastair Gordon which explores the ground-breaking visionary architecture of the '60s.

Wired Magazine, in their June 23, 2008 issue describes the book:
Through hundreds of groovy photos, Alastair Gordon's book explores the tripped-out buildings of the age of Aquarius. Spaced Out shows how ambitiously experimental, hallucinogenically colorful, and at times laughably impractical the designs were - from a waterbed prototype to a house that changed colors in response to human touch. Gordon, a New York Times contributor, highlights the technologies in use today that were pioneered during the era's kaleidoscopic revolution. Turn on, drop out, move in.
