Volume 35 , Issue 3 September Pages As for utopianism, the whole s-era counterculture could easily be seen as a utopian project, but the diversity of the twenty chapters of this work makes them vary quite a lot in their utopian content. The utopian focus of the first four chapters is not in doubt: they survey Drop City, the pioneer American hippie commune whose geodesic domes covered with car tops recovered from junkyards influenced a whole era of countercultural communitarians; the wide-ranging experimental workshops of Anna and Lawrence Halprin, which sought new ways of approaching design involving such art forms and exercises as dance and building structures from driftwood, always involving "a communal participatory encounter" 37 ; the Crossroads Community, an early experiment in living in harmony with nature in San Francisco that recovered wasted spaces under a freeway and used them for gardens, orchards, and animal husbandry, putting new environmental concepts into action; and that city's video collectives, which took an emerging technology and made it usher in new art forms, working in collaboration with each other.
