re: hippie architecture/environmental design and its aesthetic and social production

Places Journal published Hippie Modernism: How Bay Area design radicals tried to save the planet, by Greg Castillo.

On a related note back in 2014 I started a thread over at Archinect, asking for reading suggestion for –

books/essays which explore links between participatory-design/performance and political and ecological engagement in architecture and urbanism

Specifically within context of counter/sub-cultural movements of 1960s/70s.

Thinking of groups like Ant Farm, SuperStudio (and although not specifically architects) Drop City artists’ commune, et al.

Closest i could seem to find was some works by Simon Sadler out of UC Davis…
