Barnes first fell in love with the Futuro House as a boy when he saw his first of the prefab pods during a holiday trip to South Africa. Thirty years later, he used his life savings to purchase the 1972 elliptical fiberglass house and shipped it back to home in Herefordshire, where he reassembled it piece by piece over a period of 18 months. Barnes sees his Futuro House as “an active space, open and provocative” and has worked to bring his restored masterpiece into the public sphere. Related:...
