Description

Prefabricated construction has enjoyed a renaissance of late in architectural circles, due largely to the continual refinement of production processes. This book provides an overview of various construction approaches resulting in higher quality and lower costs. Outlining six systems, including steel and timber framing, sandwich panels and modular systems, each chapter delves into the benefits and drawbacks of its respective method. A section at the end illustrates further experiments that do not fit in to any of the aforementioned categories. With 30 varied case studies (including concrete in Texas, a modular earthquake shelter in Kobe, the 'hot white orange' portable heated amphitheatre) illustrated by detailed plans, sections and photographs, this is a thorough and informative work.
