Format: Hardcover
Museum of Modern Art
"Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling"
Exhibition: 20 July - 20 October 2008, New York City
Monograph: "Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling"
Authors: Barry Bergdoll and Peter Christensen
Publisher: Birkhäuser Basel
ISBN: 3764388625

The Museum of Modern Art has created an excellent exhibition entitled "Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling". The exhibit and associated monograph spans from 1772 pre-fabricated colonies to today's cutting edge technologies as can be seen in the prototypes built by the KieranTimberlake Associates "Cellophane House", Horden Cherry Lee Architects / Haack + Höpfner Architects "Micro Compact" module, and Oskar Leo Kaufman + Albert Rüf, KFN Systems "System 3" projects.

The beauty of this collection of works is to be able to look back over time, to see the mileposts of innovation over the years, ponder pathways that were cut short, and make connections between disparate projects to see a culmination of knowledge ripe for today's construction market.

Within the exhibition, one can learn from a series of trends in the design and construction movement: Pre-Cut Parts, Panels, Frames, Modules, and Leveling Systems.

Pre-Cut Parts
These individual pieces are shipped to a client for assembly into a more complex whole on site. The process employs mass production efficiencies and minimized shipping volumes. Sears & Roebuck Company's mail-order catalogue homes from 1908, with over 30,000 ready to assemble parts, epitomized this process.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I can't rate this book high enough and express with all due eloquence my admiration for the role the MOMA has played in the development of modern architecture. From the 1988 exhibition on deconstructivism to Home Delivery highlighting the wonders of prefab architecture, the MOMA has made history - and this book offers an excellent summary of that museum's contribution. It literally changed my views on prefab, opening up my horizon, freeing my mind and giving me new ideas for the design of my future house. It introduced me to luminary architects like Kieran Timberlake and their ethereal Cellophane house. I loved this book and regret somewhat having bought it second hand, though it arrived in reasonably good condition.
