Description Change this

As part of the Exhibition Case per Tutti (Houses for Everybody) at the Milano Triennale in May 2008, a prefabricated prototype of an Elemental House was built. The entire house was reduced to 10 panels assembled in 24 hours.

In social housing the usual relation between structural work and finishes (30/70) is inverted, the structure sometimes absorbing 80% of the final direct costs.

In the specific framework in which we are working, where more than half of the housing complexes will be self-built, the repetition of the components, chain production, and process repetition, instead of being a negative outcome, may be the only way of ensuring the future quality of the neighborhood.
