Decatur County Kansas family with Sod House -- 1880s (Kansas Memory)

National Geographic has an interesting slideshow of “futuristic” farming structure designs, remarkably reminiscent of the concepts of Fourier, Saint Simon and other Utopian Socialists of the early nineteenth century. That’s not to say that none of them will see the light of day – just that the track record of such predictions shouldn’t lead one to bet the farm.
