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.
  • Resolution: 4 Architecture is the most prolific prefab firm with more than sixty homes built across the United States, ranging in size from 500-squarefoot cabins to 1,800-square foot urban residences to 7,000-square foot compounds
  • Resolution: 4 Architecture's competition-winning entry for the 2003 Dwell Home Design Invitational helped ignite interest in prefab houses
  • Foreword by former Dwell editor-in-chief and current New York Times columnist Allison Arieff
  • The firm's projects are in NC, MA, NY, CT, and WV


Editorial Reviews

"Four years ago I lamented the end of the road for green modern prefab, a dream partially inspired by Allison Arieff's book on the subject. Joseph Tanney, a principal of Resolution: 4 Architecture, disagreed and wrote, 'End of the road for green prefab? In fact, I think this just might be the beginning.' Now Princeton Architectural Press has released Modern Modular, by Joseph and partner Robert Luntz. The book demonstrates that I was spectacularly wrong about the end of the road..."
"Tanney and Luntz have further refined their prefab system to create surprises within the modern modular framework. It's safe to say more surprises will follow in the future as they continue to refine their prefab modern houses."

Jetson Green:
"Mix and match your requirements for a modular house with design in focus. Modern Modular is a contemporary insight by Resolution: 4 Architecture a New York-based firm that has bound modern prefabricated building practice with a design focused approach. If you are looking for inspiration, take a look."
