Program

Much debated and never less than divisive – this studio talk will focus upon pre-fabricated housing and its future role within the city. Is the idea of pre-fab just too out-dated? Or are its merits too often overlooked and simply underestimated? Our “pre-fab experts“ who have either designed pre-fabs in the past or actively work with these buildings today will discuss the future of concrete slab housing we’ve come to know.
