Prefabricated Housing

Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling comprises a selective survey of prefabrication in architecture, represented by a timeline, and a building project of contemporary prefabricated homes on the MoMA west lot that is available until October 20th.

Home Delivery examines this architectural form through historical documents, full-scale reassemblies, and films that trace the roots of prefabrication in the work of individual architects like Frank Lloyd Wright, Jean Prouvé, and Richard Rogers and corporations such as Lustron, and in the imaginative systems of other influential figures, including R. Buckminster Fuller.

The earlier post on Lustron houses was a good'n'.

Where's Rocio Romero's LV Home in all this? Conspicuously missing. And they're not just some prototype; people already live in them.
