Get Home Delivery

If you missed the Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling exhibition (and the incredible examples of pre-fab houses in the gallery and outside) that recently closed at MoMA, you can still get the exceptional catalog edited by Barry Bergdoll and Peter Christensen. This well-designed document (see here) profiles the leaders in prefabrication from Charles and Ray Eames to Buckminster Fuller and many more from the 1920s to the present, including the Lustron house (above), which never needed to be painted.
    For those who like playing trivia guessing games, the book is filled with facts, including the answer to the riddle, “Who designed the Lincoln Logs toy?” Okay, I won’t keep you guessing … John Lloyd Wright, Frank Lloyd Wright’s son.
