The Futuro House

Architecture, Travel

This may look like a UFO, but it actually doesn’t fly at all. This object was made for land, as it was created by Matti Suuronen, a Finnish architect. He was hired by Dr. Jaakko Hidenkari in 1968.

The original idea was to make an easy to transport ski-cabin. It could then be used in remote locations and was suitable for most weather conditions. The approximate size of The Futuro House is 26′ in diameter and about 14′ high.

This particular one is located in Frisco, N.C. However, they can be found around the world. Check out The Futuro House to learn more about this iconic and unique piece of history.
