7 Homes That Look Like UFOs, From A Quirky Florida Landmark To Naomi Campbell's 'Spaceship' House (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

In the late 1950s, following the launch of the Soviet Union's rocket Sputnik and the U.S.'s desire to beat them in the space race, pop culture took on a deep fascination with all things extraterrestrial. Formally known as the Space Age, this movement touched virtually everything, including architecture, while simultaneously poking fun of the anxieties brought on by the exploration of the unknown.

As a result, homes such as the Futuro were designed and built based on that growing interest, but from the looks of more recent projects like Naomi Campbell's spaceship-inspired home, the craze over space hasn't died out.

In the slideshow below, we've compiled images of 7 homes that look like UFOs. While some houses were never intended to mimic flying saucers, we learned that others were deliberately designed to do just that. To satisfy your curiosity, take a look for yourself.
