Dominate the World from The Volcano House

Dominate the World from The Volcano House

In the dusty desert lands of Southern California, two hours east from the city of Los Angeles, lies the Volcano House: a concrete modernist masterpiece that sits on top of a small volcanic peak.  Truss beams and heavily-laid concrete formed the desert dome, which radiates a sort of tongue-in-cheek brutalism that screams 1960s American modernism both inside and out.  For all of its exterior charm and interesting location, what would this location be without ten subterranean floors equipped with henchmen barracks and villainous shark tanks?  Once you get your rocket launching pad permitted, be sure to install a vintage 1960s-era computer to control it’s targeting system… I mean, what’s the use of good interior design if there’s no consistency? – via
