|I got the chance to visit the Museum of Modern Art’s “Home Delivery” show just after it opened in July with my family. We had a great time visiting all 5 of the houses, and it was pretty amazing to see the ShopBot-Cut house sitting right there in the middle of Manhattan (see story in the 2 articles below). The team from MIT accomplished something impressive here, getting a lot of help from Bill Young. Exhibit Video: Tour All 5 Houses

Posted below are several pictures of the show, focusing on the yourHouse Project that was designed by Larry Sass and MIT colleagues and cut with a ShopBot. Inside the museum, there are some interesting materials about housing technology and prefab houses as well. In the displays the museum did not do a good job of explaining the ideas behind the 5 houses or the building methods they employed — among which the digitally-fabricated yourHouse project was the most unique. But for those who are interested, there is some wonderful explanatory documentation, pictures, and video on the Museum’s blog site covering the history and progress of the housing projects (click here to view).
