Loblolly House: Elements of a New Architecture + DVDLoblolly House: Elements of a New Architecture + DVD

Situated on idyllic Taylors Island, Loblolly House inaugurates a more efficient way of building. Through the use of building modeling (BIM), the architects were able to streamline the design-build process. Thousands of parts were collapsed and integrated into a few dozen panels and blocks that slid into an aluminum frame set on wooden pylons. Consisting of 70 percent prefabricated components, the kit-of-parts house was assembled (mostly with a wrench) and lifted into place on-site in less than six weeks.  Unlike most houses, even those built with sustainability in mind, Loblolly disassembles as easily as it assembles .  More in this book:
