Futuro House


Without a description of these pictures you might think I spotted a UFO, but this is actually a house by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen. The Futuro House is in San Diego, and is one of 20 that were ever built. Suuronen designed them in 1968 as ski-cabins or holiday homes, they were completely furnished and were made to accommodate 8 people. The owner of this one had it transported on the back of a flatbed truck through the mountains near San Diego and then put in place by a crane. It’'s very retro and almost a little bit spooky; I wonder what people who saw this thing pass through intersections must have been thinking.
