#15. MASS DEBATING OVER MASS PRODUCTION these periodic proposals of housing prefab now seem like a form of architectural rehab designer formulas attempt redemption
to try and combat this price-rise nation
so bring it out and dust it down
come up with all the same solutions
kits of parts and mass production
it hasn’t moved since archigram but since the success of ikea
comes the resurrection of flat pack ideas all seems nice until you look around
these standardised elements they rave about already exist and everywhere
the brick, the plank the tradesman’s fare efficient building methods have been here for years its back to déjà vu confusions
red herring discussions and exhibitions big white elephant of construction economic and democratic thoughts of progress scuppered by all the material mess a century on it’s rewind and replay
empty promises in perpetual delay
now packaged designed and duly presented is this instruction manual aesthetic
the ‘saviour’ for our situation?
or really more systems used to uphold a system?
