Futuristic Mobile Homes And "the Bubble House, A Rising Market"

Recommended Posts

I thought this design history from the optimistic 60 / 70s, would give Hpc'ers a laugh. Paticularly the irony of the Bubble House & it's tag line.

Kids of the 70s were robbed! All you had to worry about was nuclear armageddon .

Looks amazing!

My impression is that to get planning permission, any self build has to look like a council estate house down the road. Is there anywhere in England where you can experiment? How do they get Grand Designs houses approved?

Uk is stepford wife clone housing .

For individuality, best to build "garden office / storage shed" keep it within permitted development under 30 sq m to avoid build regs & planning . be discrete for living perhaps have cheap camper van /caravan " nearby" ;)

For a great story of a pioneers battle to get land for experimental building is Mike reynolds Earthship film...

In those days in the UK they could afford to think of something futuristic and "better" (modules and bubble shapes etc) - London still being the exception even then.

These days it's right down to the nitty gritty of a roof over your head and (luxury) garden shed accommodation. The question as always where to put them.

It's still a sort of a laugh to see what they were thinking housing would turn out like in those days considering the (tiny) slave box reality of modern day Britain.
