Architect Jonathan Davis will speak at Dwell on Design

Friday, June 21st 2013, 4pm
Though you’d be forgiven for thinking that prefab design is little more than whatever factory-made box can fit on the back of a flatbed, poky little prefab homes tell only half the story. Thanks to hybridized construction, the endless possibilities of modular building, and an ever-mounting appetite for efficient housing, we’re seeing more and more square footage with a prefabbed roof over its head. In this session we’ll talk with architects Leo Marmol, Whitney Sander, and Jonathan Davis—who will also share images of their recent projects—about how prefab housing is scaling up.

Date: Friday, June 21
Time: 4:00 pm
