From Engineering News Record.
The Museum of Modern Art launched a $650,000 project involving five prefabricated homes by separate designers constructed in six weeks, located on an open lot adjacent to the museum’s Midtown location. SYSTEM3 house designed by Oskar Leo Kaufmann and Albert Röf of Austria, was complete within seven hours of the materials arriving at the site. The Housing for New Orleans project by Massachusetts Institute of Technology students, required no nails or fasteners. The BURST*008 house by New York architects Jeremy Edmiston and Douglas Gauthier designed the structure to squash like an accordion. The Cellophane House by KieranTimberlake Associates of Philadelphia was the only project created specifically for the show. The Micro Compact Home was designed by Horden Cherry Lee Architects of London, and Haack Höpfner Architects of Munich.
