What a great time to be in New York! I had the pleasure of visiting this past weekend, and as we are gearing up for the Best and Worst Hometown Design this week, I couldn’t help but stand in awe of all the exhibits in New York! I have been there several times before, but I definitely left more impressed this time than in previous visits.
One exhibit that I was not fortunate enough to see was one that was featured in the NY Times. The Museum of Contemporary Art had an exhibit on instant houses, which you can see here.

This excerpt below, from the NY Times article, can give you an idea of what you can expect at the exhibit:
So “Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling,” which opens on Sunday at the Museum of Modern Art, is a delightful surprise. Organized by Barry Bergdoll, MoMA’s chief curator of architecture and design, it presents more than 80 projects, from humble experiments in suburban living to stunning works of creative imagination. In a tour de force Mr. Bergdoll was able to build five full-scale model houses for the show in a lot just west of the museum. The effect is startling: expressions of a suburban utopian world surrounded by Midtown’s looming skyscrapers.
Has anyone visited yet? What did you think? Did I make a grave mistake by not attending?
