MoMA Home Delivery Prefabs Debut This Sunday!

Burst008

A while back when we heard about MoMA’s prefab exhibit, Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling, we were pretty psyched.  I mean, if you can’t tell by our archives with over 135 articles, we’re pretty obsessed with green prefab as the future of home building.  The MoMA exhibit will tell an interesting story of the history of prefabrication starting in 1833.  I’m sure we’ve come a long way in over 175 years, but there’s also the possibility that we’ve forgotten a few lessons in the process.  So I like the juxtaposition of the historical with the modern.  The modern will include five contemporary prefab structures, all of which have been assembled on the museum’s 54th street lot.  Starting this Sunday, July 20 through October 20, visitors will get the chance to tour the below designs in real life.
