A Clean Break postcard

Design Philadelphia, an international confab on design now in its fourth year continues to be a cornucopia of delights for those interested in design.  This year DP has 83 events and programs Oct. 16 through Oct. 22 including lectures and…an outdoor exhibit of prefab housing, titled A Clean Break,  on the vacant lot on South Broad St. near Spruce. (Echoes of MoMA’s prefab housing exhibit?  See posts.)

A Clean Break — sponsored/organized by Minima and co-curated by Eugenie Perret and Elizabeth Oliver — rounds up prefabs from firms from Chile, Toronto, Minneapolis, Kansas City and elsewhere including the local Interface Studio Architects.  “Green” products will also  be on display including bicycles and furniture from designers like Iannone Design and Daniel Michalik.

Prefab postcard all put together. How hard was it? A lot easier than making a prefab house! 6 cuts, some folds and a little tape. Love it!
