The Futuro House was designed in 1968 by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen. It was commissioned as a "holiday house" or vacation home. Because it would be used in a mountainside setting, the structure needed to be easy to transport to the site, low maintenance and shed snow easily.
I've always had a fascination with these things - would be cool if someone started manufacturing them again. Poor man's ski chalet, "safety meeting" shack, etc.
Lots of vids on youtube...
