The strange-looking structure in the pictures in a Futuro house. That was a product of post-war Finland. This house reflects the period’s faith in technology, the conquering of space, unprecedented economic growth, and an increase in leisure time. Suuronen was the designer of this structure that looks like a ski cabin. Suuronen’s purpose was to build something that was “quick to heat and easy to construct in rough terrain.”
The end result was a universally transportable home. This house could be mass replicated and situated in almost any environment. According to Suuronen, it was exactly what people needed.
Sadly, by the mid-1970s, the house was no longer on the market. They took this product off the market for two distinct reasons. First, because of poor marketing. Second, because gasoline prices at that time tripled due to the Oil Crisis. That made the manufacture of plastic extremely expensive.
There are still some Futuro homes around the wrong. Around 60 – 100 of the original Futuro homes are still surviving across the globe.
