The modernist prefab housing trend is gaining some traction in Germany. As a fan of modern design and prefab housing, I fully support this. There are some beautiful prefab structures being sold these days, so much better than the crap that went up in the 1970s.
Also, pick up a copy of the April/May 2005 issue of Dwell to see an article on a cool prefab apartment complex that is going up in Manchester, UK. If I ever end up there for work, I’ll definitely look into getting a flat in that building.
