Weak Market Hits MoMA Pre-Fabs

Not that we need any more evidence that the real estate market is frozen, but it appears that the architects who participated in this summer's widely-praised MoMA show on pre-fab design can't sell their model houses. So reports New York Magazine . Only the smallest of the bunch, the MicroCompact House (watch the video) managed to snag a buyer. Meanwhile several other architects are slashing prices. Not Philly's own Kieran Timberlake, which listed its Cellophane House for $1.75 million. They're disassembling the see-through house and will store it till they get their prices. Any collectors out there?

Gee, the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia will GIVE a Stonorov-designed steel house to anyone who promises to preserve and protect it....

That's a savings of about $1 million!
