"Unfold Your House!" Day

Almost simultaneously, Future Feed brings Adam Kalkin's "Push Button House" (top), and BLDGBLOG brings Andrew Maynard's Holl House (bottom) to our attention. The former was probably posted because of the New York Times article yesterday, but the latter is a welcome surprise. He wasn't the first to toy with the re-appropriation of shipping containers, but when Wes Jones published Instrumental Form those Shipping Container Houses sure did capture a lot of people's imagination. (Really, really nice drawings.) Speaking of nice drawings, does anyone talk about Rudolph's Oriental Gardens anymore? Its a hard segue, but one of DYWSC?'s favorites might be the Dwell Competition award winning house by Resolution 4 Architecture. (They proposed a system, like legos, not just a home.) Not much unfolding there. [PreFab]

Nice juxtaposition; I saw that Kalkin article. Great overlap there -
