Matti Suuronen was a Finnish architect who is best known for making the Futuro and the Venturo houses.

Suuronen became internationally known for designing buildings using reinforced plastic, especially Futuro and Venturo houses. Suuronen made novel use of materials such as polyester resin, fiberglass, and acrylic windows for use in civil structures. A key element in his design was creating prefabricated elements that would later be assembled into complete structures.

The iconic flying saucer design of the Futuro was developed in the late 1960s. While the form of the Futuro was linked to the aesthetics of science fiction, it stands as a significant early investigation of the use of plastics in prefabricated housing.
