    popcorn ceilings at Space Mountain, Disney World

    Space Mountain in Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland. 

    As any architect would I looked for the interesting. The surrounding area had this Futurism feel to it.  Space Mountain very much appears to have elements from Antonio Sant'Elia work (La Città Nuova, 1914)

    As we approached the roller coaster cars I started inspecting the ceiling and all the lighting effects.

    Popcorn ceilings!

    In the future, popcorn ceilings will be installed even in spaceships.

    Below is a photo of the interior of the plane we took back from Orlando to New Jersey.  Familiar? but no Popcorn Ceiling.

    Future design towards the exit of Space Mountain, a Dwell magazine special with a robot.

    Some photos of the Peoplemover at Tomorrowland just outside Space Mountain.

      For a moment, I was thinking 1960s Asbestos popcorn ceiling.

Boredom as a result of too much to do.  Too much professional practice architecture.  Too much reality. Lots of fiction.
