The Museum of Modern Art’s exhibition, Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling, surveys the past, present and future of the prefabricated home. This panel focuses on two quintessential prefab hubs, Japan and the Nordic countries. Ken Tadashi Oshima, assistant professor of architecture at the University of Washington, speaks on the potentials of prefab in Japan, a country where the marketing of homes is similar to the marketing of cars. Rasmus Waern, Swedish architect and architectural historian, speaks on prefab as a model of society in the Nordic countries. A panel discussion is then moderated by Peter Christensen, curatorial assistant in the MoMA Architecture & Design department. This event was held by MoMA and by The Architectural League of New York. The Home Delivery exhibition is up through October 20, 2008.
