Back to the Future

This little community was designed for the 1967 World's Fair to showcase a futuristic way of living communally in the city. It's one of the two survivals from those heady days, along with the geodesic dome.

Designed by an Israeli-Canadian, Moshe Safdie, the structure consists of an assortment of interconnected concrete cubes stacked up in what looks almost like a random arrangement.

It's a sight that evokes Le Corbusier and also native Mexican pueblos. The little community still has inhabitants, each household living in several cubes and each having access to at least one roof-garden.
