Modular building: design, construction, new technologies
Systems that can be used in many different ways for efficient building
Architects have always planned and built using construction systems consisting of a few identical elements with a focus on more efficient and economical construction progress and possible subsequent dismantling or modification. Prefabricated systems of components that can be combined with each other and with modern planning and production methods will be an increasingly important aspect of architecture in future.
Components and Systems describes various prefabricated construction components and open and closed systems in the context of frame, panel and modular construction methods. Information on transport and installation and a preview of future building methods round out the topic. Explanations are supplemented by detailed drawings and colour photos.
