Drop City

“ At Drop City, the domes were built without a systematic kit or an exact design, using waste and salvaged material, including car roofs.”

“Drop City was an intentional community in southern Colorado established in 1965 and abandoned in 1973. (…).”

“During its creative heyday between 1965-1969, Drop City consisted of around 14-20 inhabitants whose main artistic output took the form of buildings. Inspired by the geodesic design principles of Buckminster Fuller, a number of domes were built, a kind of DIY version of Fuller’s scientific and precise method. It was the first time that geodesic domes were used for domestic living; until then they had only housed exhibitions or were used for industrial and institutional applications.”
