Episode 1 - The Futuro House

An intergalactic journey through Berlin's future dreams of the past in the first ever podcast release under Secret Place Berlin. We explore a 1960’s pre-fabricated home intended for use on vacations, and its gradual decline then transformation into a worldwide phenomenon and cult design classic.
