“Design is so simple. That’s why it’s so complicated.” –Paul Rand

The curving bricks of Botta’s Museum 1 recall his signature style as well as his San Francisco Museum of Modern Art building as well as his BIS building in Basel, Switzerland.
The staircase was built using standard wood frame construction with plywood treads. Each step was then covered with a thin sheet of folded steel that outlines its angled profile.
The Atelier 1 radio from 1957 still used a bit of wood but was moving toward a more technical aesthetic. Rams also designed a record player as part of the series.
As part of the exhibit, MoMA installed a replica of Grete Schutte-Lihotsky's Frankfurt Kitchen. It was designed in the mid 1920's as part of a worker housing complex in Frankfurt.
The light-filled foyer was part of Goodman’s original design for Unit House No. 6, upon which the Wilson’s model is based.

This "local prefab" home on the Isle of Skye is made mostly from materials sourced in northern Scotland. The timber-framed model, meant to evoke the simple agrarian barns of the area, can be constructed on-site in as little as a day and is designed for affordability.
When Abbie and Bill Burton hired Marmol Radziner to design their prefab weekend home, their two requests were “simple-simple, replaceable materials,” says Abbie—such as concrete floors (poured offsite in Marmol Radziner's factory) and metal panel siding—and “the ability to be indoors or outdoors with ease.” Deep overhangs provide shade and protection from rain, so the Burtons can leave their doors open year-round and hang out on their 70-foot-long deck even in inclement weather. They visit the house once a month, usually for a week at a time, with Vinnie and Stella, their rescue Bernese Mountain dogs. Their two adult children occasionally join them. The couple hopes to one day retire here.
The oversize hearth (of which there is an outdoor double) was part of the original design specifications. “Ben said he wanted a fireplace big enough to cook a wild boar,” says Mark Anderson of Anderson and Anderson.
The City would not accept a design where the front part of the house, shown in green, is physically disconnected from a back part of the house, shown in blue. It was acceptable for the garage and recreation room, shown in yellow, to be detached from the blue structure. We argued that the raised swimming pool deck, marked in red, which is physically attached to the green and blue structures, should constitute a sufficient “connection” between the front and back parts of the house. This City did not agree. So as much as we like our internal courtyard, we need to make a stronger physical connection between the green and blue structures if we are to receive our building permit.
Restorick also built this quirky oak staircase with open shelving along one side. "I use accessories as the color in spaces," says Tyler, "so these items are an integral part of the overall design."
