2012 Lecture Series: Sheri Koones - Prefabulous + Sustainable
Prefab housing is one of the most sensible ways to realize both affordability and sustainability. Author Sheri Koones has documented and profiled dozens of examples in her numerous books. Through a number of these case studies, she will explore various prefab methodologies -- including modular, panelized, and SIPS -- and explain how the owners, architects and builders sought to push the envelope on energy and water efficiency, waste reduction, indoor air quality, and site selection, while maximizing affordability, innovation and charm. You'll be amazed at what can be accomplished with prefab.
