MoMA: Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling

Beach house
I went to the MoMA exhibit "Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling" and took some photos.

The exhibit, to me, sucked. There was one room with stuff in it. The topic was fascinating: constructing home that can be packed and shipped to a location, then constructed with ease. But the exhibit didn't make it pop for me.

The thing that was so built up, to me, was the construction of homes next to the museum. They were empty and soulless. You walked through them without anything pointed out to you. Like walking through rental apartments on display.

Glad I went, though.
