This is a series for August 2010 which documents my on-the-ground -- and on-the-webs -- research for my guidebook to contemporary NYC architecture (to be released next year by W. W. Norton). Archives can be found at the bottom of the post and via the 31 in 31 label.

Bronx Box

One of a few buildings in the new fifth edition of the AIA Guide to New York City that was not part of my research to date is a residence near the Throgs Neck Bridge in the Bronx by Resolution: 4 Architecture. Called "Bronx Box" by the architects known for designing prefab buildings in rural contexts, this is their first urban prefabricated house, an 1,800-sf, two-story one that doubles the size of the previous house as it reuses the foundation. The house was shipped in two pieces and assembled on site.
