"Lost" Architecture

LOST, perhaps one of the most popular TV shows of the last decade came to an end yesterday. You may or may not have seen the show, and you may or may not like it, but the truth is there was some fine “architectural” treasures. People at Arkinet thought so, so here’s what worth remembering. Images after the break.

“The LOST domes are 5/8ths truncated spheres. Geodesic spheres truncated into domes are a collision point between mathematical purity and architectural integrity. The narrative of LOST places the construction of these geodesic domes in the mid-1970s. In the mid-1970s Buckminster Fuller was at the height of his popularity and influence. The use of domes in LOST helps establish when the story is taking place and the sympathies of the characters that constructed them.” from Synchronfile.com

And finally, one of LOST’s most memorable scenes, from inside the hatch, which housed Desmond’s mod living quarters and the control room.
