Futuro: The House Design That Really Did Look Like A (1960s) Spaceship
"Before the recession and the return of architectural probity, the phrase 'like an alien spaceship' was all over architecture journalism like a cheap suit. ... Frank Gehry? Future Systems? Zaha Hadid? Yep, spaceship-mongers. Well there's only one building where that simile is inescapable, and that's the Futuro house, designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen in 1968."
