The structural design of the Futuro House was originally planned by Finnish architect Matti Suoronnen in the 1960’s - it was originally fabricated to stand as an innovative Finnish weekend cottage, a futuristic adaptation of a traditional scandinavian country house. Approximately one in 60 existing today, Futuro House stands for traditional views on futuristic explorations, an embrace of the ultra extremist design of our fortune. Today the Futuro House has been prefabricated by artist Craig Barnes and lives its futuristic purposes by travelling the world over, fulfilling its current day vision for it to be an active space, open and provocative. Currently ‘docked’ on the roof of Central Saint Martins, Professor Jeremy Till saw the potential for students and staff to work with ideas of the future in this icon of space age design.
