Title: Mobile home
Authors: Tetlow, Keith
Issue Date: 1-Aug-1999
Abstract: This thesis is an exploration of the transversality of and between the concepts 'mobility' and 'home' that is embodied in the Mobile Home as a building type. This is investigated through the work of Le Corbusier, Allan Wallis, Iain Chambers, Paul Virilio, Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, Nigel Thrift, Tim Cresswell, Marc Auge, Brian Massumi, Kim Adams, Andrea Zittel, Richard Misrach, David Rigsbee, Bruce Chatwin, and others. It is an ambulatory voyage through the works of these artists and authors, set against the evolution of the Mobile Home as conceptual framework and American industrially manufactured building type. The work is written from the perspective of one interested in uncovering the implications for the theory, understanding, and design methodology of architecture and design.
