But prefab has clear benefits outside of the upper-tier homeowner market. The elements of mass-customization, ease of mobility, and versatility of building materials make prefab homes ideal for low-income communities and areas that have been struck by disasters, such as the Gulf Coast and Pakistan. The UVA School of Architecture’s ecoMOD project and much of the work of Architecture for Humanity are great testaments to the broader possibilities for prefab as a tool for assisting disadvantaged populations.
