Description

Prefabricated housing has long since ceased to mean the disfigurement of the urban landscape with monotonous grey boxes. Particularly in Central Europe and Russia, modern assembly methods and 100 years of experience in planning pre­fabricated buildings and constructing with large panels are experiencing a re­naissance. Whereas predominantly in Moscow– the largest European metropolis with seventeen million – prefabri­cated housing is an essential instrument for the provision of residential assistance, prefabrication methods in Germanyand Switzerland, for example, are used to build exclusive properties. This con­struction manual examines the potential of prefabricated housing on structural, historical and architectural grounds. In addition to an insight into the methods of production and assembly, roughly twenty selected examples provide a contribution to the discussion on affordable housing.

Vol. 1: Technologies and Methods

Vol. 2: Buildings and Typologies
