This vision of the House of Tomorrow called the Futuro is a white plastic house that looks like a flying saucer.

"It was created by a Finnish architect Matti Suuronen in 1968, and features oval-shaped windows and a walkway up to the front, resembling that of an aircraft. The Futuro house identifies with space-architecture, summing up the characteristic themes of the Utopian structure, which consists of mobility, increased leisure time and new materials."

In the 1960's, there was no doubt that we would be living in a Utopia by 2000. It was designed to be moved by helicopter and cheap enough to be mass produced.

It will be sold on Tuesday at Christies in Paris for an expected $222,200-$296,200.
