Googie architecture is a type of futurist architecture influenced by car culture, jets, the Space Age, and the Atomic Age. Common features in architecture included upswept roofs, usage of geometric shapes as well as neon, glass, and steel. It is often associated with Retro-Futurism.

Origin

The term "Googie" has been dated back to architect John Lautner, who created Hollywood landmark cafe 'Googies', but coined to Douglas Haskell, editor of House & Home magazine.
