Prefabricated housing of high design and quality construction has long been an elusive goal for architects, where industry practices, bureaucratic regulations, and cost have always stood in the way, until now. The New York-based firm Resolution: 4 Architecture is revolutionizing prefab housing with their Modern Modular design system. Home designs based on modules of use intended for communal or private spaces are mixed and matched to achieve an infinite number of designs suited to each buyer's site, budget, and lifestyle. Modern Modular, the first book on the critically acclaimed firm, presents fourteen beautifully photographed case studies illustrating each step in their prefab system, from design and fabrication to transportation, siting, and final construction of distinctively modern and surprisingly affordable new homes.
  • Resolution: 4 Architecture is the most prolific prefab firm with more than sixty homes built across the United States, ranging in size from 500-squarefoot cabins to 1,800-square foot urban residences to 7,000-square foot compounds
  • Resolution: 4 Architecture's competition-winning entry for the 2003 Dwell Home Design Invitational helped ignite interest in prefab houses
  • Foreword by former Dwell editor-in-chief and current New York Times columnist Allison Arieff
  • The firm's projects are in NC, MA, NY, CT, and WV
