Authors: Edited by Peter Gössel
Language: Multilingual English, French, German
A prefab is a mass-produced house, constructed in a factory and
assembled on–site in a few days or weeks. Once regarded as a cheap,
easy solution for urgent housing problems, the prefab has evolved to
become a synonym for ambitious design and sophisticated detailing
PreFab Houses covers prefabs from the USA via Europe
to Asia and Africa, giving insight into the various industrially
prefabricated components, the difficulties of delivery to the building
site, and the intricacies of assembly and completion.
It also features a unique compilation of one-off prefabricated houses
by well-known international architects, as well as successful dwellings
manufactured off-site for everyday modern living.
