Would anyone have more information on architect Marvin Goody?

Jean Maneval also designed a similar one that was actually commercialized: http://www.designboom.com/eng/archi/maneval.html

I love the idea of a wall fridge.

Not quite sure about the irradiated food compartment, though. :wink:

jakabedy, I missed the House of Tomorrow, too-- if it closed in 1967, that predated my first Disneyland visit by a few years. But I remember going to the Carousel of Progress a couple of times (I think my mom just wanted to sit down in the air conditioning for a while). The Monsanto propaganda attraction of my youth was Journey Through Inner Space.

Thanks for the images, MD2! I can't believe they tore the building down. What a waste.
