I don't think I've ever mentioned The Jetsons on this blog before, which is odd because I love retro-futurism and cartoons, and I think I've seen every episode. The Jetsons turned 50 and NPR did a little story about that.
After listening to it, I checked out the Smithsonian Paleofuture blog that was mentioned in the story. And you should too, it's a pretty outstanding dissection of the show, it's politics and futurism in general.
I can only hope that a future post will focus on the architecture of the show, because it's pretty outstanding too.
And any mid-century fan will notice some pretty big similarities between The Jetsons buildings and Brasilia, both the city and the furniture.
