Slow Signs of Prefab Progress

Following up on this summer's show at MoMA comes Philadelphia's own prefab housing exhibition, A Clean Break. Although only two housing modules are featured, both are more livable than what we saw in New York: the rather trailerlike MiniHome, and the elegantly simple WeeHouse (ironically named here, as this unit contained no bathroom) shown here. The latter showed the most promise; it felt simply like a small modern home, and standing inside, one could at last glimpse a comfortable future in houses trucked onsite and locked together.
