Digging holes for concrete foundations
Concrete – here it comes
Die Neue Sammlung is paying tribute to the icon of the space age with a presentation in an outdoor space at Pinakothek der Moderne of the FUTURO, designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen in 1965-7 and originally intended as a ski lodge.
Ellipsoid in shape, the FUTURO definitely epitomizes the future visions of the 1960s, in which visionary designs focused on new materials for mobile living environments. Driven by a faith in science and technology and in the conquest of space, the FUTURO symbolizes the striving in that era for new, functional, efficient and mass-producible forms of housing.
The presentation of FUTURO will be flanked by several “program satellites” that address the building and future visions in design, film, literature, music and performance.
Pinkakothek der Moderne, Munich
