Futuro homes
« on: November 05, 2014, 02:29:27 PM »
I was alerted to the existence of these amazing things in a "amazing spaces" prog on TV last night. Not microcars but you can just imagine an owner driving up to one in a Tourette!

Fantastic, I want one. Brazilian designer/inventor Panamarenko designed a fairly similar "UFO" house. Just the thing to park your Dymaxion in front of.

Hmmm, not sure about the outspan Orange mini, doesnt really a"peel" to me! Or is that remark a little too pithy? ;D

Bob perhaps your comments should be in another " segment "

under the heading " Egon Bruetschs other projects " we went here some time ago - this is what Herr Bruetsch turned his hand to after his Microcar escapades  ;) looks almost like a Halloween pumpkin
