Home Economics is a collection of home objects cast from houses in Detroit slated for demolition. By celebrating unspectacular architectural details, the store seeks to preserve a disappearing image of the city by bringing its fabric into an economics of everyday use: from outside to inside, from surface to skin, from the physical boundaries of the city into the international marketplace. Designed and Curated by Jaffer Kolb About Jaffer: Jaffer Kolb is the 2014-2015 Muschenheim Fellow at Taubman College. A designer, critic, and sometimes curator, he is currently forming an independent practice with colleagues that finds new sites for architecture working between, among, and against institutions within political economies. He participated in the 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennial, as well as in exhibitions at London’s Tate Modern, the New Museum in New York and several smaller galleries. His work has appeared in publications including Wired, Blueprint, Pidgin Magazine, and Abitare. As an architectural designer, he has worked for Diller Scofidio + Renfro and WorkAC in New York, Studio Gang in Chicago, and the Doug Aitken Workshop in Los Angeles. Previously he worked on the 13th Venice Biennale of Architecture under David Chipperfield, and before that was the US Editor of the Architectural Review. He holds a Master of Architecture from Princeton University’s School of Architecture, a Master’s in Urban Planning from the London School of Economics, and his Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies from Wesleyan University.
