Musea E-mail Club #438: Housing and the Art Revolution

Musea E-mail Club #438: Housing and the Art Revolution
There are yet new videos this week – see at the end of
the message.

We are in a big mess when it comes to housing. it was
clear to me as early as the late nineties, that houses
were getting too expensive for most people to afford.
What my parents could afford in the last century was
now outrageously expensive.
So back in Feb of 1999, I suggested in Musea #76, the
"New City" issue, that architects should use their
vision, artistic ability, and innovative skills to
design a house that not only people could afford
(maybe as low as $10-$20,000), but that would be both
charming AND environmentally sound.
Back in 1947 we had Levittown – a mass produced
suburb. At the time people loved the ability to afford
a house in the suburbs – it was the life of the
fifties. But at the same time, they hated the
regimented clone-like sameness of every house on the
block.
There is no reason that we can’t have the best of both
worlds – affordable functional housing that is also
architectually beautiful and distinct from its
neighbors.
We have a population where a lot of singles,
newlyweds, retired people, etc. would love to have a
small affordable home of their own.
With a housing slump, building affordable housing
seems the way to go.
