Futuro – The round prefabricated house in Espoo

The house designed by Matti Suuronen, of which fewer than 100 were built duringthe late 1960s and early 1970s. The Futuro is composed of fiberglass-reinforced polyester plastic, polyester-polyurethane, and poly, measuring 4 meters high and 8 meters in diameter.

It was designed by Suuronen as a ski cabin that would be “quick to heat and easy to construct in rough terrain”. The end result was a universally transportable home that had the ability to be mass replicated and situated in almost any environment.
