The Futuro House

We went on a little excursion this morning to see the Futuro House which looks as if it’s landed like an alien spacecraft on the roof of Matt’s Gallery next door to the Ragged School Museum on the Regent’s Canal.   The first Futuro House was designed in the 1960s in Finland as a ski cabin and they were then manufactured as cheap homes.   But they were so unpopular that they were subjected to drive-by shootings in the United States.   This one was found ruined in South Africa and has been meticulously restored by Craig Barnes, an architect, maybe as an example of cheap manufactured homes:
