Deco cast one hell of a shadow on our culture. This could just as easily be the 60s.
One of these days I have to find some photos of the house that Wallace Neff designed for himself in Pasadena. It was a round dome and inexpensive to build and his vision was to supply affordable housing around the world. Concrete over a huge balloon was the method of construction – remind me if you want to see it – these days I have a memory like a sieve.
concrete over a huge balloon? Why didn’t the romans think of that?
Because the Roman’s made balloons out of pig’s bladders! Thanks for the email I am on it the day after Thanksgiving. XOX, V
you…YOU are soo sweet!
