In 1962. Jurij Gagarin was launched in Space, in 1969. Neil Armstrong walked on Moon, and futuristic dreams were going to be true. There was a bookstore on the 57th street on the third floor (PRudolph's office was on the seventh) where I found two fantastic books, "Dymaxion World of Buckminster Fuller", and "Archigram". They opened some new way of techno - futuristic thinking. In some way, it corresponded with realism of Rudolph's "20th century bricks", with Habitat in Montreal and Japanese metabolism. Tokyo Nakagin Tower of K.Kurokawa with attached capsules was published in those days.
I was deeply touched with promising new age and possible new architecture. As a tribute capsule architecture, I drew my capsule for the time ahead. It assumed new materials, lighter, stronger, thinner, with better insulation. Capsule was to be cheap and mass produced, easily transported in kit parts and simple set up. Future imagination calculated with different kind of food (scientist nutrition alike with astronauts), different kind of cloth (in Dymaxion, people were nude), and possibly different kind of family (those days it looked likely that something would change?).
Unique capsule of 285 cm (9'6'') by 285 (9'6'') can serve for different purpose:
-Rest capsule (sleeping, sex, relaxation)
-Eating capsule (food, drink, nutrition)
-Work capsule (education, play, computer service)
-Social capsule (meetings, common gatherings, hologram)
