Prefabricated architecture is turning into an important trend in the world of contemporary design. Lots of architects and designers have reinvented the prefabricated house with new materials and construction techniques, such as containers, which are easy to transport, are put up in one day and are often in surprising locations. Prefabricated houses offer ecological solutions and sustainability compared with traditional building systems, since they represent a more effective use of resources and a reduction in construction time. This book presents prefabricated housing projects made from wood, recycled materials and recycled containers... all of which include step by step photographs and building plans along with assembly details.
