Coming soon (well, in July) to the streets of NYC, Prefab houses. We love them because they’re eco-friendly, and design-forward, and besides, they’re not that much smaller than the average NYC apartment…
To many people the term “prefab housing” calls to mind trailer parks. Yet lately prefabricated houses — built off site and then delivered largely complete — have become fashionable at architecture schools and among an upscale segment of the housing market. They pose a considerable design challenge. Seizing the moment the Museum of Modern Art has commissioned five architects to erect their own prefab dwellings in a vacant lot on West 53rd Street, adjacent to the museum. Whittled down from a pool of about 400, the five architects are participating in “Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling,” an exhibition opening in July.
And in case you’re wondering, that beauty in the pic will not be in the MOMA show, which is too bad. It’s the “Single Hauz” from Front Architecture out of Poland.
