If you thought Florida’s dilapidated Dome Home was an odd residence, check out this abandoned flying saucer-themed house in Royse City, Texas. The bizarre building is a Futuro House, a retro-futuristic architectural design by Matti Suuronen dating to the late 1960s. Despite its obvious cult following, only around 100 were manufactured, with about 50 believed to remain in existence across the globe.
Dallas-based British expat SGR, also known as “grumpyoldlimey”, has devoted a section of his blog Strange, Weird, Wonderful & Cool Buildings to charting the locations of surviving Futuro Houses. His Futuro House Project is a must-read resource for anyone interested in this form of architecture. For more “UFO houses”, be sure to check out the now demolished Sanzhi Pod City in Taiwan.
