The micro compact home was included in a major architectural exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York in 2008.
Home delivery: ‘fabricating the modern dwelling’ offered the most thorough examination of the historical and contemporary significance
of factory-produced architecture to date.
With increasing concern about issues such as sustainability and the swelling global population, prefabrication has taken centre stage as a prime solution to a host of pressing needs. The viability of prefabricated structures has long served as a central precept in modern architecture, and it continues to spur imaginative design and the development of innovative manufacturing processes. The exhibition featured five full-scale contemporary prefabricated houses, constructed in the outdoors space to the west of the main museum building, continuing MoMA’s rich history of presenting full-scale architectural projects.
