title THE INSTANT HOUSE: Design and digital fabrication of housing for developing environments
source CAADRIA 2006 [Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia] Kumamoto (Japan) March 30th - April 2nd 2006, 209-216
summary Through a novel method, it is possible to provide mass customized, designed housing to emergency and poverty stricken locations. A definitive need exists for a system that is rapidly deployable and scalable while fostering individuality within the larger rebuilt community. This paper describes the relationship of digital fabrication to materials and design rules by example. The paper ends with different iterations of the Instant house and an explanation of its construction method and execution.
