summary At the beginning of the 20th century, the clarion call of the Modern Movement was sounded to awaken architects to the purity and clarity of engineered and manufactured goods. In this aesthetic, the house was to be considered a manufactured item, drawing upon scientific and engineering logic for the design to be clarified and reduced to the essential. Mass production of the house would bring the best to a wide market and design would not cater to the elite. At the start of the 21st century, the goal remains, although reinterpreted, with the process inverted. No longer does factory production mean mass production of a standard item to fit all purposes, i.e., one size fits all. Instead, we now strive for mass customization, bringing the benefits of factory production to the creation of a unique component or series of similar elements differentiated through digitally controlled variation.
