The Museum of Modern Art in New York City has opened a show about prefabricated housing and includes the Oriental Gardens project by Paul Rudolph for New Haven, Connecticut in the late 60's. The show opened July 20th and runs until October 20th, 2008.
"Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling comprises a survey of the history of the prefabricated home and a building project of five contemporary prefabricated houses in the museum's Fifty-fourth Street lot. Overall, the exhibition attests to the diversity of procedural, formal, and technological innovation in prefabricated architecture, and illustrates that the prefabricated house is a critical agent in architectural invention, material and formal research, and sustainability."
