Disneyland’s House of the Future

Between 1957 and 1967, Disneyland would lay its cards on the table and put forward the whacky shapes, gadgets and materials that it believed would constitute the housing of the future. This particular example features ‘four equal wings ‘floating’ above landscaped grounds and waterfalls; an Atoms for Living Kitchen, with its revolutionary “microwave” oven; and a sleek living room, with its giant, wall mounted television screen’. Very preescent! Apparently, the planned one-day demolition of the House of the Future actually took two weeks ‘as the wrecking ball just bounced off the exterior. Workers painstakingly cut the house into pieces with hacksaws’.
