The HOME House Project

MOREMAS was one of 25 winning entries in the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) sponsored open competition in 2003 that drew 440 entries from the United States and six other countries, all using Habitat for Humanity’s three- and four-bedroom house plans as a point of departure for the design of affordable and environmentally friendly housing. This book, published in conjunction with a traveling exhibition, documents the 25 prize-winning designs as well as fifty other selected submissions with 396 color illustrations. The accompanying text includes Michael Sorkin’s essay connecting democratic values to quality of housing, Ben Nicholson’s satiric critique of American excess, Steve Badanes’s insights on the social responsibilities of architects, and HOME House Project Director David Brown’s overview of the project and its continuing evolution.
