Rehousing the American dream

New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) has invited five teams of architects, planners, ecologists, engineers and landscape designers to develop proposals for housing that would open new routes through the mortgage-foreclosure crisis that continues to afflict the suburbs of the US. The results of the teams' ideas for new models of housing, not only of its physical form but of the systems of infrastructure and finance that support it, can be viewed on the MoMA website.
