Produced in 1968 by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen - these are 'quick-placement' houses to be used as ski cabins or 'vacation saucers'.. 100 were made and only 18 known to survive in the u.s. (article in Vanity Fair Jan2012 which I bought to read on the train down to Salisbury). They're 500 sq foot, with circular fireplaces in the middle and a kitchenette and bathroom in one bit. Cannot believe that some people own these - I want one.
