The Museum of Modern Art has announced plans for an exhibition on the architecture of Pre-Fabrication. A recent recent New York Times discusses the plans for the exhibit in Is Prefab Fab? MoMA Plans a Show. Opening in July, the exhibit will feature five prefab homes in the vacant lot next to the museum. All of these structures have been commissioned by MoMA from architects with prefab experience…

and will include work from KieranTimberlake Associates of Philadelphia; Lawrence Sass of Cambridge, Mass.; Douglas Gauthier and Jeremy Edmiston of Manhattan; Oskar Leo Kaufmann and Albert Rüf of Austria; and Richard Horden of Horden Cherry Lee in London.

This should be an interesting exhibit. We look forward to “Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling” opening on July 20, 2008.
