Futuro “UFO houses” are scattered around the world. A “smitten” David Walsh, the founder of the Museum of Old and New Art (Mona), has restored one of the cult, prefabricated houses and says one day he’ll make it available to the public “at an exorbitant fee, of course”.

The flying saucers were designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen using resin, fibreglass, plastic and acrylic. The first one went on display in 1968, as the Apollo mission to the moon was being planned.

Promised as the mass producable, portable holiday homes of the future, only somewhere between 60 and 100 were made in the end. Of those surviving, about seven are in Australia...
