I have just returned from a month in Paris studying architecture. I was blown away at how pervasive cycling is within French culture, and it is spread across all generations, economic classes and races. The cycling scene is not the binary one that exists in Boston of single-speed hiptsers and hot-pants wearing weekend warriors.
Over the next few days and weeks I’ll be writing and posting lots of pictures, but I thought I’d post a great piece of architecture by Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller. This is a dome that he designed that I saw while visiting the Vitra Design campus in Germany. The first picture is particularly “bottom-brackety”, no?
