Smitten


I'm smitten with this extraordinary architectural model of Matti Suuronen's Futuro House, made in Finland around 1968. Designed as functional and efficient housing that could be mass produced, one can only wish that the real Futuro House became a reality. Who wouldn't want to live in a flying saucer?

There was one of these in my neighbourhood (in Perth, Australia) when I was growing up. It was very sad when it was removed. There's an article about it here http://thegrumpyoldlimey.com/pages/Futuro-High-Wycombe-Perth-Australia.html and it featured on the cover of a 1990s album by the Aussie band Jebediah.
