House of the Future

The Monsanto House of the Future (also known as the Home of the Future) appeared at Disneyland from 1957, to 1967.  More than 6-million guests visited this plastic marvel during its ten-year run.

The rendering, produced in SketchUp, was a challenge due to the compound curving nature of the structure.  What is easily molded in plastic can be somewhat more difficult using computer aided drafting.  Much of the interior is completed on this work-in-progress.  The logo was added using Photoshop.  Still to come is the garden of the future that surrounds the house.
