In housing construction, the term pre-fab usually refers to a modular structure built elsewhere in sections, transported and assembled at site. An ages-old construction method, historical references of pre-fab structures go as far back as the 12th century. Mail-order home kits were popular in the US in the early 1900s, and UK built thousands of boring, ugly structures in the aftermath of World War II.
But boring is the past. The future is about creating amazingly beautiful, ecologically conscious, energy-efficient, environmentally sustainable buildings. This infographic demonstrates how architects are turning the term ‘pre-fab’ on its head!
