We never said it was easy. Simple and straightforward, yes – but modular homes are real examples of innovation in prefabricated building. Nearly 90% of the home is built offsite. A highly customizable home can be built in a controlled factory environment while the building site is prepped. This technique can save builders and homeowners time and money by cutting overhead and outsourcing during the construction process. Watch this video to learn more on how modular homes can help you. Then, find a modular manufacturer that can meet your needs through the NAHB Building Systems Councils’ modular manufacturer member directory.

Not since the mid-century House in the Garden series has MoMA built occupiable model buildings to demonstrate contemporary issues to the public. The fives homes erected on the vacant west lot are designed by Kieran Timberlake Associates (Philadelphia); Jeremy Edmiston and Douglas Gauthier (New York); Horden Cherry Lee Architects / Haack + Höpfner Architects (London/Munich); Massachusetts Institute of Technology School of Architecture and Planning / Associate Professor Lawrence Sass (Cambridge); and Oskar Leo Kaufmann (Dornbirn, Austria).
