Notice to lovers of science fiction and the galactic universe, these unusual houses spread around the world will please you.
Who said you had to go to space to sleep in a ship? of UFO ? Architects had the crazy idea of building unusual places around the world inspired by their favorite sci-fi movie. The proof, with these oval-shaped houses resembling flying saucers . Among these architects, we find in particular the Finnish Matti Suuronen, who created the Futuro house: a vacation spot created from a plastic shell.
The Futuro house was unveiled in 1968, as the site specifies Architectural Digest . At the time, more than 100 houses of this type were built and installed before production ceased in 1973. Many architects around the world were inspired by them and designed their own Futuros or renovated these unusual houses. While some have been abandoned, others have been given a second life and are now fast food restaurants, museums or even offices.
