"Spaced Out: Radical Environments of the Psychedelic Sixties" explores the crash pads, hippie communes, infinity machines and other far-out dwellings of the time period. Author Alastair Gordon, whose other works have dealt primarily with the clean modernism of airports and mid-century Hamptons homes, turned his attention to the design, architecture and visual culture of LSD-inspired era, much of which hadn't been adequately preserved or documented until now.

The full-color over-sized book features a stunning collection of 450 photographs and color illustrations of geodesic domes, elaborate trailers, tree-houses and the people who inhabited them. (See more images after the jump.) The message is clear: self-taught architects who created the free-form asymmetrical structures with curving walls and womb like interiors were working in direct defiance of the white picket fence suburban culture they felt was toxic.
