    1. As luck would have it, I found myself reading this hefty, glossy art book in an open plan A frame vacation home, while on holiday in a small town on the Oregon coast which, by virtue of its relative isolation, still contains a few geodesic domes, whimsies and other visible architectural vestiges of the 1960s and 1970s.Read in such a setting, Spaced Out becomes a work of almost unbearable nostalgia Collected from original sources, unrehearsed, and often quite explicit, hundreds of photographs, dr [...]

    2. Radical pictures and a good summary of different 60 s architecture and philosophy This isn t some cliche hippie nostalgia trip either Whether they are living in tree houses communes or conceptual modern structures, these folks are all living far out on the edge and transforming themselves and the world around them.

    3. A flowing narrative of the 1960 s cultural awakening that leapt from the electric prod of a psychedelic trip and found itself spacing out first inwardly, then in an evolution of created spaces psychedelic dance halls to neumatic structures to geodesic domes and organic and chaotic forms.An absolute triumph of a book, and an incredibly exciting and inspiring excavation of a colorful, creative, independent minded past, one that came about two decades too early for me to have experienced first hand [...]

    4. Alastair Gordon pulls together all the crazy strands of hippie building domes, yurts, crash pads, communes, and biomorphic space The book has a trippy look that the designers must have loved playing with The photos carry the story I wish Gordon had gone into depth about these places and what it was really like living there, but he s caught the phenomenon he s given us a gazetteer to the spaced out places on the map.

    5. this book has lots of boobs and monolithic domesis is for the photos than the reading favorite part was about timothy leary s mexican lsd compound with a tripping tower where there were trip shifts so someone would be trippin up there at all times rumor has it that just walking by it would get you high yeah, man, yeah.

    6. The book documents in a very accessible way the psychedelic movement from a broad perspective and links it to main stream influences in for example architecture, interior design, Very accessible document with many pictures.

    7. Just got this book, which is RAD Super cool hippie commune pads and space egg like solar houses Lots to look at, with big color images of the 60 s radical environments I am excited to read all about them
