Drop City

Drop City, Colorado, an anarchist community active in the 1960's and 70's, was inspired by Buckminster Fuller to construct all of its buildings in the geodesic dome style he pioneered. They used mainly scrap that was found, donated, or stolen, at one point putting out an ad inviting "kids, tear the top off your daddy's car, and send it, together with 10 cents in cash or coin, to Drop City, Colorado..."

This uses photographs of the resulting buildings as its generative point, isolating and amplifying the geometries of the Drop City community.
