Counter Culture

1-1.5 stories
Two types of contemporary folk house styles were popular during the 1960s and 1970s when the Counter Culture Movementreached its peak in theUnited States;  A-frames and Geodesic Domes.Although A-frames are commonly used for vacation homes, their simple construction made them ideal for novice builders of the 1960s.  The open interior spaces also appeal to the people who wanted to create communal lifestyles.Buckminster Fuller popularized Geodesic domes with his design for the U.S. pavilion at the Montreal World's Fair of 1967.  Its structural design and open interior space appeal to the one-earth view of "hippies."
