Futuro House To Be Sold Off In Paris
On the 27 November, the ‘Futuro’, a white plastic house resembling a flying saucer, will be auctioned in Paris, at the Christie’s. It was created by a Finnish architect Matti Suuronen in 1968, and features oval-shaped windows and a walkway up to the front, resembling that of an aircraft. The Futuro house identifies with space-architecture, summing up the characteristic themes of the Utopian structure, which consists of mobility, increased leisure time and new materials. It stands out as the dwelling house of future as it’s been planned as a modular housing unit, light enough to be moved by helicopter, and cheap enough to be mass produced. It was exhibited in London in 1968 and recently displayed at the Luxembourg Museum of Modern Art. Christie’s expects approximately $222,200-$296,200 on the unit.
