The Prefab Box That'll Make Dwell's Ears Pop

This morning, the Wall Street Journal turns its attention to the boxy prefab wonder featured in New York last week: a 320-square-foot home in NYC's West Village that costs $39.5K. The house, the first from MEKA Luxury Modular Homes in the U.S., was fashioned from shipping containers in a factory in Eastern China, took five days to assemble once on-site, and features bamboo flooring and glass picture windows. The acronym says it all: "Modular, Environmental, Kinetic, Assemble." No word yet as to whether Dwell will pick up the story.
