Prefabricated Houses—Good and Green Design
Significant efforts are now underway to improve the reputation of prefabricated, or modular, housing. A growing number of architectural firms now combine the economic and construction efficiencies of factory-built homes with the benefits of customized, green designs. The result is sophisticated architecture and interior design that can be offered at reasonable prices and that incorporate many environmental-friendly features. Michelle Kaufmann, principal of Michelle Kaufmann Designs in California and creator of the Glidehouse™ featured in the Museum’s new exhibition The Green House: New Directions in Sustainable Architecture and Design; Joe Tanney, co-founding principal of New York-based Resolution: 4 Architecture which is known for its design of prefab housing; and Michael Sylvester, editor of fabprefab.com, a virtual resource and newsletter for modernist prefab dwellings, will discuss this growing housing trend where sustainability and good design merge.
