Monsanto House of the Future

November 8, 2011

I have been obsessed with this house since I discovered its existence (its former existence that is, since it was torn down before I was born even) about 10 years ago.  I am a huge lover of modern architecture obviously.  The only consolation I have is that this house would probably make you sick if you even stayed one night in it–it is made completely out of chemicals (plastic)!!  It was built by the Monsanto Chemical Co. in 1957 as a display at Disneyland in Anaheim and torn down in 1967.  :(  Of course I like to fantasize that one day I would build a replica with safer materials in the middle of the Swedish forest.  One day!
