1962 Seattle Worlds Fair Day 7

The Seattle Worlds Fair was supposed to look forward to 2000 to see how we would be living. and this house made of plywood was supposed to be the house of the future.

If you notice all the rooms are round, and while that seems very futuristic, I don't see any houses with round rooms being built in my area today.

What is shown is the open architecture which is common today, people want large open spaces in their houses and most new houses have the large open spaces. The other thing this house had was a lot of light, rooms had a lot of windows and skylights and that is used in many of the houses of today.
