For a lighthearted and informative time, I’d recommend a visit to Paleo-Future, a blog providing “A Look Into the Future That Never Was.”

Does this look like a city near you?

At Paleo-Future, you’ll see predictions from Criswell, drawings of flying personal platforms, sketches of moon bases, and the like. It’s interesting to visit, and the interpretations and histories are well done.

1 Thought on "The Future That Never Was"

There was an article in the Wall Street Journal last year on a related topic,

“Castles in the Air: For a century, architects have speculated about the house of tomorrow Where did they go wrong?” by Ryan Chittum
WSJ, May 14, 2007, p. R10

I’d love to give you an online link to the article, but I’d have to first register to use the search engine (because the article is over 90 days old, it uses a separate search engine – and if the article were more than 30 years old, it would be yet another search engine), and then pay for the article, even though I’m an online subscriber. My my. 🙁
