Wenger Cubes

Wenger Cubes. They're like all the back-to-the-land, flexible-DIY-with-redwood, hippie goodness of a geodesic dome, with none of the complicated angles or leaks.

Daniel L. Wenger began making these truncated hexahedrons in Santa Cruz in 1970. By the time Sunset Magazine caught up with them in 1979, there were Wenger Cube saunas, music studios, homestead cabins, and this implausibly "portable" kids' play structure--with hammock.

Is there a Wenger shack in your retro-future?
