    Feb. 29, 2008: The Dymaxion House

    With Disneyland's recent announcement of the Innoventions Dream House, thereís been a lot of interest in the old Monsanto House of the Future, which has been gone for over 40 years.

    Did you know that hereís another highly original "house of the future" that still gives tours? Itís in Dearborn, Michigan.

    There's also a connection to Epcot.


    Please discuss it here.

    I live near dearborn and have visited the Museum several times. I love this house and would live there now. It still feels modern and practical.

    Werner, you say that there are numerous homages to the House of the Future at Disneyland and WDW. That would make a great entry for Yesterland! Think about it.

    Absolutely cool article! I want one too!! Thanks for all those photos. Kind of a sideways look at where the future could have gone. I think I saw a brief doc about this house on the History Channel a few years ago.
