A busy week!
Inhabitat's Prefab Friday enjoyed Method Homes' cabin:
we’re happy to report that Method Home’s modern wood wonder has blossomed into a beautiful home.
Inhabitat also covered HOM:
Simple, purposeful, ecological and crafted, HOM houses are meant as secondary residences; a HOM away from home to which busy urbanites can escape in style.
Jetson Green wrote about a container home in San Francisco, designed by Leger Wanaselja Architecture:
It's a simple design that shows what [is] possible with innovative home construction.
Visit Jetson Green for the full post and a bunch of photos of the home. The previous day, Preston previewed the West Coast Green showhome:
It's a 1700 sf container home, but you probably can't tell just by looking.
We'll cover West Coast Green and the showhome in more detail soon.
And a little more news on MoMA's Home Delivery show. New York's The Villager discussed the show:
“Home Delivery" ... is a coup for quality. It’s also a tour of prefab past, a spiffy toy store of drawings, models and actual toys from the century-plus history of industrialized home construction.
Business Week reran a short article from Architectural Record on the show:
One of New York's most exciting cultural venues this summer is a vacant lot in Midtown Manhattan....
Moco Loco ran a series of posts on their favorite three homes in the show. They introduced the show Monday. On Tuesday, they covered the System3 house:
Inside, its austere bearing gives way to a more luxurious simplicity...
Wednesday's post featured an interview with Cellophane House designer James Timberlake:
What will happen to this particular home on October 21?
We are working on this concurrently with the show. We have discussed the possibility of auctioning the house.
Thursday's post looked at BURST*:
But marveling at the architecture is not the point of BURST*. Ultimately, the structure puts the emphasis on nature: The house’s rear elevation unfurls in a cascade of bleacher-style seating, all the better to sit and enjoy the view—out.
