Two of the first houses I wrote about when I started this blog in January of 2008 were the Futuro, known as “The UFO House,” and the groovy Venturo Modular Home. They were part of architect Matti Suuronen’s creative vision in the ’60s and ’70s for housing that could work in locations where it might be difficult to build. He had some interesting ideas, so his houses are still fun to look at today.
I was surprised to see that these have been two of my most popular posts lately, considering I wrote them over 3 years ago and haven’t thought about them much since then. Turns out there was a mention on the MSN Real Estate blog that sent thousands of readers this way. So thanks to Teresa for the shout-out! I thought I’d mention them here in case you–like 99% of my readers–missed them the first time around. You can read all about them here:
