by Ian Volner By current estimates, close to 11 million American homeowners are in serious distress, owing more on their homes than the homes themselves are worth. Foreclosure rates have been elevated since the financial crisis began in 2008, and the value of the nation’s housing stock is projected to continue to plummet for the foreseeable future. The dismal state of American housing, and of the suburban landscape that’s been Ground Zero for the crisis, is the subject of “Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream”, a new exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art open until July 30th. Under Chief Curator Barry Bergdoll, MoMA’s Department of Architecture & Design has brought together the contributions of five collaborative teams, each of which recasts the old-fashioned bedroom community for the 21st century.
