PREFABRICATED HOUSING: CONSTRUCTION AND DESIGN MANUAL. Philipp Meuser. DOM Publishers, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Actar D/Actar Distribution Inc., New York. 456 pp. with 900 col. ills. ISBN 9783869224275 In English.
Publisher's description: Prefabricated housing has long since ceased to mean the disfigurement of the urban landscape with monotonous grey boxes. Particularly in Central Europe and Russia, modern assembly methods and 100 years of experience in planning prefabricated buildings and constructing with large panels are experiencing a renaissance. Whereas predominantly in Moscow - the largest European metropolis with seventeen million - prefabricated housing is an essential instrument for the provision of residential assistance, prefabrication methods in Germany and Switzerland, for example, are used to build exclusive properties. This construction manual examines the potential of prefabricated housing on structural, historical and architectural grounds. In addition to an insight into the methods of production and assembly, roughly twenty selected examples are presented in large-format photographs, plans rich in detail and meaningful diagrams, providing a contribution to the discussion on affordable housing.
