Prefabricated housing of high design and quality construction has long been an elusive goal for architects, where industry practices, bureaucratic regulations, and cost have always stood in the way— until now. The New York–based firm Resolution: 4 Architecture is revolutionizing prefab housing with their Modern Modular design system. Home designs based on modules of use intended for communal or private spaces are mixed and matched to achieve an infinite number of designs suited to each buyer's site, budget, and lifestyle. Modern Modular, the first book on the critically acclaimed firm, presents fourteen beautifully photographed case studies illustrating each step in their prefab system—from design and fabrication to transportation, siting, and final construction of distinctively modern and surprisingly affordable new homes.

Their resultant prefab explorations, RES4 PREFABS, is based on their concept, or theory, of the MODERN MODULAR, a systematic methodology of design that attempts to leverage existing methods of prefabrication. The MODERN MODULAR is comprised of MODULES OF USE, which are A) COMMUNAL MODULES, containing kitchen, dining, and living space, and B) PRIVATE MODULES, containing bedrooms, bathrooms, and storage space. They created a series of TYPOLOGIES, I, II, III, Z, U, O, L schemes, illustrating potential concepts in organization. The size and number of these modules are determined by the client's needs, while the arrangement and orientation of these modules are determined by the conditions of the site. Thus, each project is specific to each client, site, and budget"--
