Screen Shot 2015-06-26 at 7.23.52 AMMimi Zeiger opines in DeZeen Magazine about the return of what she calls "Hippie Architecture" — the Organic, eccentric, often handmade architecture often found in several corners of California, the Pacific Northwest, and other familiar haunts of the long hairs and incense burners.
