The BrighBuilt team and the project itself is unique for many reasons - the collaboration of designers and technicians, the combination of off site fabrication and on site finishing, and the high standards for sustainability in a tough cold climate. But we are hardly the first group of idealists to come together to create a prototype for an ideal living unit and there is a great deal of interest in pre-fabricated housing in today's shelter mags and blogs.
An exhibit opening this weekend at the MOMA presents a history of pre-fabricated houses and includes five full scale model houses. It looks to me like the BrightBuilt Barn should be among them! Below are links to the exhibit itself and to a review in the NY Times.
