The Space Age. Mid Century Architecture and Design.

I love what came out of the "Space Age". From the architecture, to home decor, fashion and more, it was the coolest time.   Will we ever see a more interesting take on design? I think not.

Here are some of my favorite Googie designs:

The "Space Age" was definitely a very cool time in architecture and design. Luckily, we can still see spaceship-like design elements in some contemporary works. :)
