[Re]Visiting the House: Lustron Prototype House
Once a primary topic of architectural discourse, from Vitruvius to Laugier, the house as a container of necessitysafety and comforthas largely been reduced to inconsequential discussion. Beyond coffee table books filled with full-bleed photographs, what happened to the architectural discourse regarding the house? Why is the single-family dwelling largely under-scrutinized and un-criticized? It is the aim of [Re]Thinking the House to ignite the field of inquiry regarding the single-family dwelling and its role within architectural circles.

American veterans returning from World War II were faced with a critical shortage of affordable housing. Carl G. Strandlund saw an opportunity to use the porcelain-enameled steel panels popular for filling stations to create mass-produced steel houses. He hoped to apply the continuous production lines of the automobile industry to the housing industry and make Columbus "the Detroit of the housing industry".
