A historic, ready-to-assemble metal home by noted modernist architect Albert Frey is moving from a New York storage unit to Southern California this week.
On 9 February 2017, the Aluminaire House1 – which is currently disassembled – will be removed from storage in Long Island and be driven across America to Palm Springs, where it will remain permanently in a park opening later this year.
- 1. The Aluminaire House Foundation is working to have the home added to the National Register of Historic Places. An endowment will help with ongoing maintenance of the house.
The dwelling "continues to be considered a masterpiece of modernist design" the organisation noted. It was included in Architectural Record's recent list of the the most important buildings completed in the past 125 years.
