Back to the Futuro

Image: © John Sturrock
The Futuro House was a prefab vacation home designed in the swinging 1960s by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen. Its fresh look and modern shape reflected the spirit of optimism and experimentation that characterized the decade. Futuro homes were built around the world. But they fell out of fashion, and many of the original ones were abandoned.

This one is owned by artist Craig Barnes who painstakingly restored it. It is currently located on the roof of the University of the Arts London’s Central St. Martins college, where it’s open to the public one day a month and can be rented by groups.
