Editorial Reviews

Review


"The contemporary case studies that make up the bulk of the book prove that it is but the first step in a fascinating field of study." - Metropolis


"Prefab is a popular topic for architects, but this small volume, published by Princeton Architectural Press, makes a case for considering prefab interior elements that we take for granted (partitions, kitchens, storage systems and staircases) equally marvellous." - Azure Magazine

"This attractive volume on modern architecture examines the concept of modularity and prefabrication in interior design. The work covers twenty-four specific projects - each section includes a brief explanation of processes, principles, construction, and materials " - Book News

From the Author

"Schneiderman's history lays out a very useful classification of the main types--partition-based concepts like the 1946 Eames plywood screens, modular interiors like Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky's 1926 Frankfurt Kitchen, and rooms that come ready-made as a single piece, like Joe Colombo's Total Furnishing Unit from 1972. The contemporary case studies that make up the bulk of the book prove that it is but the first step in a fascinating field of study." - Metropolis

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The first page I looked at I laughed. The design highlighted was charming, beautiful, simple...and funny in a great way. This book lets us enjoy a series of prefabricated kitchens and rooms, etc. that just might fit in your house. Cut-outs for lamps so you can fold a table upwards or flip it around or...
The imaginations of the designers in this book are endless and inspiring.
Great book and good shipping.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A wonderfully concise exploration of the development of the ready made volume. It leaves its reader feeling optimistic for the possible implementations pre-fabricated and modular designs can have on our built environment. The socio-economic implications that each example provides Pre-Fabrication a more enticing light!
