Architects have been intrigued by prefabricated construction since
the early 20th century. Recent advances in design, engineering and
manufacturing processes have led to a significant expansion in the
use of pre-assembled components which are fitted to finished
structures on site. Collectively, such processes are becoming known
as `offsite construction'. A groundbreaking text, Offsite
Architecture establishes the current - and future - state of
thinking in this field. A range of the most highly regarded
thinkers and practitioners from around the globe share their ideas
and practical findings on offsite prefabrication, examining theory
and practice, opportunities and challenges, successes and failures.
A timely response to the growing interest in this method, the book
provides the fundamental basis for a critical, reflective approach
to offsite architecture. Contributions from both academics and
professionals make Offsite Architecture required reading for
practitioners as well as students taking courses in architecture,
prefabrication, construction, and engineering.
