Five model dwellings have replaced the lines of snaking tourists on the 54th Street lot adjacent to MoMA. The new real estate is part of the museum’s latest show “Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling,” a look at all that’s fab in prefab architecture. Finally after several weeks of hot summer building, MoMA threw a sold-out house party, PopRally style, to celebrate their newest show.

Featured architects include:
KieranTimberlake Associates, Jeremy Edmiston and Douglas Gauthier, Horden Cherry Lee Architechts/Haack + Höpfner Architects. MIT School of Architecture and Planning/Associate Professor Lawrence Sass, and Kaufmann | Rüf Architects.

The Cellophane House by Stephen and James Timberlake was arguably the star of the show, though someone was overheard remarking, ''It looks so big from the outside, but there's surprisingly little living space once you get inside.'' Photo © 2008 Teri Duerr.

The micro compact home by Richard Horden, Lydia Haack and John Höpfner was an extremely slick and very claustrophobic cube of house. Bonus points for the solar panels though. Photo © 2008 Teri Duerr.
