In conjunction with Design Philadelphia and National Design Week 2008, Minima Gallery in Philadelphia is hosting a prefab exhibition titled A Clean Break from October 17-30.  The purpose of this event is to promote "clean development — aesthetically and ecologically."  The exhibit is described as an "exhibition of modern prefab architecture and high-design, low-waste innovations for the urban environment."  Pretty cool.

The exhibit will showcase an actual neighborhood of full-scale homes open for tours and will also feature urban farming, eco-friendly furniture, transportation, public art, and other low-waste products. 

Featured architects include Alchemy Architects — creators of the WeeHouse (shown arriving above), Elemental out of Chile, Interface Studio Architects, Altius Architecture of the MiniHome, as well as Bike Share Philadelphia, Greensgrow-Philadelphia, and green furniture producer Iannone Design.

Overall, this sounds like an incredible event that any fan of prefab or sustainable design shouldn’t miss.  Check out A Clean Break’s website for more information, photos, and contacts.
