    Monsanto House of the Future, revisited

    well, sort of. This article made me think of it:

    http://biz.yahoo.com/special/luxury100506_article1.html

    These people probably could have been prevailed upon to build a "house of the future" in Tomorrowland.

    They say when they went to demolish the MHOTF, that the wrecking ball bounced right off of it.

    I heard that. Pretty funny story. Hey, at least the house was durable!

    I think the MHOTF is still a house of the future - it could easily come back and fit into a tomorrowland theme. Many futuristic things never came to pass for everyday living from that house - and many more could be added. And since "mid-century modern" is so in vogue . . . .

    Very interesting article?

    Where did MHOTF used to stand? where BLAB is now?

    I believe it was around where the Ariel meet and greet/King Triton fountain is now.

    Just west of there, between the entrance to Tomorrowland and the Matterhorn.

    As I understand it, if you look carefully in Triton's Gardens, you can still see the base for the House of the Future!

    I had heard that on at least one of the tours, they point out the former foundation of the house of the future. i've never been able to confirm a particular location, however.

    maybe I need to do the tour!

    Re: Monsanto House of the Future, revisited

    Another good article about the House of the Future.

    http://www.mindfully.org/Plastic/Mon...ftheFuture.htm

    Personally I like it and would love to have a home like it.

    It might also be good for low-income housing construction, seeing as how the costs to build are much cheaper than for traditional housing.
