Modular Building

The allure of building indoors in a controlled environment instead of in the mud, muck, and maelstrom of a conventional site has made prefabrication a strong candidate for the future of construction for architects, engineers, and construction futurists. But time and again, the revolutionary potential of the approach has failed to materialize.
