Prefab (Gibbs Smith, 2002) by Allison Arieff and Bryan Burkhart explores prefabricated houses designed by leading contemporary architects.
Prefab’s primary focus is the work of more than twenty-five contemporary architects and designers who are exploring the myriad possibilities that prefabrication offers for housing for the future. From the poetic constructions of Shigeru Ban to the industrial minimalism of KFN’s portable structures, from the fantastical digitized aluminium prototypes of Greg Lynn to the stylish functionality of IKEA’s prefab apartments, Prefab presents a series of innovative homes and concepts that boldly demonstrates how far this much maligned building technique has come, and how far it can go.
