In the future
According to Motorola in 1961, in the future we would all be living in glass houses furnished with mostly uncomfortable but galactically cool looking furniture. I love the art style of these ads. Hard to choose which one to post.
See the rest here. And of course, glass houses didn't become the norm, but these guys weren't that far off the mark. You do occasionally see someone building a modern day glass house. Like this one I recently saw on Facebook.
Trouble with an glass roof, of course, is the heat factor. If you live in a very sunny climate, not that practical but admit I would love to spend a few days in the fall in this one.
