We've popped up a few camping tents, but a pop-up neighborhood is a feat to behold. As part of Design Philadelphia, local gallery Minima put together an exhibit called A Clean Break. It creates an on-the-fly urban utopia with prefab houses, public art, green furniture, bike advocates and urban farming. You can get a taste of these temporary environs online, but we call first dibs on the weeHouse. Organizers hope the show offers a realistic picture of how this fashionable dwelling—and other prefab houses—can mingle among existing city architecture.
