Xanadu HouseStreet Art // Tuesday, 27 Sep 2011
"Heralded as “House of the Future”, the Xanadu House by Roy Mason is a domed structure constructed completely form insulating polyurethane foam. The house was appropriately built less than 30 miles away from Disney World’s “Land of Tomorrow” Epcot Center and the two were opened only a few months apart." The house contained a computer system that planned balanced meals and cooked them automatically as a set date and time. One could also generate various landscapes through the windows by a single click of a button. Eventually the house was demolished due to materials and methods used within the house becoming obsolete.
