Bubble House (1968)

This French house, designed by Antti Lovag in 1968 and photographed by Ken Sparkes in 2006, is a shining example of paleo-futuristic design.

Many thanks to Richard Green for the link.

Interesting how much it reminds me of "Barbapapa's New House" (see" REL="nofollow">this synposis for a picture of the new house in question), from the French series of children's books. I'm pretty sure the book came a couple of years later on, so I'm wondering if it was inspired by the house you show, or if that was just kind of the Shape Of Things To Come, housing-wise, at the time.

Doesn't it remind you of some houses in the Myst video game(s)?

Maybe that's where they got the idea.

Here's a little history of the house:

Wow. I ususally dislike 'arty' houses, but that has a certain charm.
