This book presents examples of prefabricated architecture in a contemporary context, with special emphasis on more ecological models. Prefabricated constructions represent a more effective use of resources, a reduction in construction time and a minimization
of the generation of waste. These attributes imply a reduction in the ecological footprint of such constructions, and in the case of residential architecture may represent the optimum balance between the size of the module and the real time it will be used for. As well as offering new solutions for prefabricated homes, New Prefab, also focuses on cases related to ephemeral architecture (stands, mobile offices, pavilions),
situational architecture (refuges, information centers) or public installations.
