The Craft Begins

The Craft Begins

Art, cooking, life – everything's a craft.

 

Drop City

I stumbled across pictures of this commune and they really caught my eye. Geodesic domes are interesting (somewhat) but a pretty typical sight in the hippie-prone west – however, I’ve never seen them so colorful and out of what looks like stained glass.

    oooh.. they look like arty little bio-domes. i wonder too, if communes will become popular again, with the resurgence of being sustainability.

    This is really interesting, I wonder what it is like inside those domes?

    My guy’s theatre company uses these for performances. They’re portable and create a really unique space.
