This installation takes us to northern California and into the burgeoning world of modern prefab architecture. “The word prefab is often used to describe any type of home that is made from easy-to-assemble building parts that were manufactured off-site.” (architecture.about.com)
However, what makes modern prefab architecture so intriguing to architects, city planners and early adopters is its attention to precision and design. Prefabrication allows for repeat-ability, predictability (a good thing when faced with the inherent unpredictable nature of home building) and a limitation of waste. In theory, the resources saved by mitigating waste can then be reinvested in higher quality materials.
