Toroidal Architecture

I posted this on my tumblr a few days ago and it got a lot of love, so I felt like sharing it here too (as well as putting it my tech exploration with the aim of seducing the markers)

Some really neat conceptual drawings from a 1976 book by Gerard O’Neill called “The High Frontier: Human Colonies in Space”.  Essentially a pictorial guide for where NASA would be heading after completion of the Apollo programme.  As well as a couple of illustrations by Donald Davies

I’ve included a few of the beautiful images to peruse.  I love the idea of hopeful speculation, seeing how far our minds can push existing technologies beyond their logical conclusion.

For more images visit my super cool blog!  

(Also is strangely reminiscent of Owen’s moving drawing video, and was referenced in the Mobile Gundam Suit models Ayub has)
