Brown Bag Lunch Lecture
Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling
September 25, 2008
This lecture provides an overview of Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling. The exhibition is a survey of the past, present, and future of the prefabricated home, and a building project on the Museum's vacant west lot. Not since the mid-century House in the Garden series has MoMA built occupiable model buildings to demonstrate contemporary issues to the public. The fives homes erected on the vacant west lot are designed by Kieran Timberlake Associates (Philadelphia); Jeremy Edmiston and Douglas Gauthier (New York); Horden Cherry Lee Architects/Haack + Höpfner Architects (London/Munich); Massachusetts Institute of Technology School of Architecture and Planning/Associate Professor Lawrence Sass (Cambridge); and Oskar Leo Kaufmann (Dornbirn, Austria).
Lecturer Peter Christensen (bArch, Cornell University; MDesS candidate, Harvard University) is a curatorial assistant in the Department of Architecture and Design at MoMA.
This event is held in conjunction with the exhibition Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling.
