Robert Bruno’s Steel House
Robert Bruno’s steel house – a creation that he worked on for more than three decades – rises tall above the surrounding landscape to give those inside a spectacular view of the nearby lake. Bruno began building his home near Lubbock, Texas in the mid-1970s. Today, its impressive form – part 1950s Chevy, part airplane, part sci-fi spaceship – it is one of the most unique homes in the world. Bruno used 110 tons of steel to complete his vision.
This futuristic 'chemosphere' home in Beverly Hills is the creation of architect John Lautner. The house was built in 1960 – it was one of the worlds most modern homes at its time. John Lautner didn’t believe that his work was futuristic, his opinion was that good architecture exits out of time. Also called 'the flying saucer house' because of its shape and the fact that it was built the year Kennedy launched the challenge to fly to the moon.
Bart Prince House
This home in Albuquerque, New Mexico, that most people calls 'the spaceship house' or 'bug house' was designed and built by architect Bart Prince in 1983. Prince is renowned for his incredibly creative approach to designing structures. The homes he has created looks nothing like the boxy houses you and I live in; they’re quirky, organic and most definitely one-of-a-kind.
Tennessee’s Flying Saucer House
Beam me up Scotty!
This house in Chattanooga,Tennessee, is a good example of extremism from the swinging seventies – built in 1970 by Claude King. King was inspired by the recent moonlanding of Neil Armstrong and by the original "Star Trek" TV series. The house is only accessible with an retractable electric staircase. It is the ideal holiday pod for Captain Kirk because he can always pick up chicks by saying: ‘hey, baby, let's go back to my spaceship for a drink’.
Pensacola Beach Flying Saucer House
Take me to your leader
At 1304 Panferio Drive, Pensacola Beach one would find a house so alien that it has it’s own website. Currently it is just an unoccupied space. However the house is in the process of being renovated to look like it’s old unearthly self.
