The architects have not been, I think, the main researchers in this area. Professional illustrators of comic and pulp SF magazines,such Frank R. Paui, many times on the imaginations of the authors of the text made very interesting images of what could be coming. In fact some things there described (say the love for curved shapes proper of aerodynamical forms, the use of legs or protrusions as stabilizators, etc, all these things) are there shown.

In the architectural field I think no other has attained more fame than Archigram for proposing future structures. Metabolist architectures and some saucer shaped restaurants and houses of about the sixties (flintstones' like) are other valid entries in the field.

The technological big buildigs of today ay no doubt as well seminal in that they are required way to producing the coming structures of the future. In all buildings should approach more and more the machines to live of Le Corbusier.
