At first glance, I thought MOMO was a nickname for a museum. The Museum of Modern… Organisms?
I should have been thinking globally. MOMO, which stands for Modernistiskt Modulhuskoncept and is Swedish for “modern module house concept”.
Designed by architect Thomas Lind, the first of these 107 square feet modulars will be assembled in Sweden in the summer of 2008. What makes it green? Their small size, solid wood materials, a roof that is to be a blend of water-storing succulents and grasses and a built-in stretched cloth shade.
Billed as a Summer Home, each MOMO module is priced at about $25,000. Not bad at all. Get several friends in on the idea and assemble a sleek-looking stay cool Swedish summer commune.
