The Futuro House was conceived by Matti Suuronen in 1968 as a "portable" ski chalet. It is an iconic piece of architecture and this website is devoted to documenting the history of the Futuro House and the current status and whereabouts of the remaining examples.

Help Translate Non English Documents
TranslateI have many books, magazines etc. in my Collection and a fair number are in languages other than English; these may contain new information about one or more Futuros but without translated text that information cannot be added here. If you are able to translate something I can provide high res files for that purpose. Look for the icon on the Collection page; it can be used to send me an email regarding translation of a particular book or document.
A NOTE ON MY USE OF IMAGES

All images used on these pages are attributed by means of a name and a link to the original image or article containing the image. Where necessary permission to display the image has either already been given or there has not yet been a response to a request for permission that was made at the time the image was added.

I used to wait until I got a response to requests before publishing but in 100% of requests made since I started researching the Futuro House around 24 months ago I have always been given permission to use images.

Therefore going forward I intend to request permission as I always have but publish images with appropriate attribution at the time so I do not subsequently have to go back and edit pages to add them.
  • If you find an image you own used on one of my pages that you would like removed please let me know and I will do so immediately.
  • If you would like the attribution used for one of your images altered please let me know and I will make the appropriate edits immediately.
  • Please note that this website is the new home of The Futuro House Project. Where permission was granted to display images on that original site I have assumed the permission holds true for this new permanent home on its own domain. Please let me know if you own an image and do not wish it to be used on this new site let me know.
You can contact me by email or by using the Contact Form.

CONTACT FORM

Please use this form to suggest additional sites or information, corrections or updates to existing data or for questions regarding image or media attribution - basically anything Futuro.

If you provide your email address it will be used to respond to your submission only and then deleted unless you check yes to be added to the mailing list. In that case your email will be used for that one purpose and the only emails you will receive will be advising you that updates to the website have taken place. As with most things this site will improve only if it's readers provide feedback indicating what I can do to make it serve their needs better and I encourage and look forward to all feedback be it positive or negative.

I would also encourage the use of the comment form below for general comments and discussion that all Futuro aficionados can take part in. There is a great deal of factual information here but there are also opinions - how the Futuro came about - success or failure and so on - and lively debate about opinions is what keeps the world, and in particular the web, a tickin'.
