Built by GREENbuild, a studio of thesis students, this prototype’s focus is on modular construction and the prefabrication process with an emphasis on eco-friendly building materials and methods. Working as individuals, in small groups, and as an entire studio team, students spent weeks designing an affordable, eco-friendly and modular 1200 square foot home. The modules’ roofs are built flatly, help to brace the modules in transport and are hinged into position once on site to provide clerestory lighting. Additionally, the three modules can be reconfigured to fit different site conditions and provide varied outdoor porch spaces. The design is a result of green building techniques and modularity that can be adapted to different sites and neighborhoods with ease of construction at an affordable rate.
The studio’s strongest emphasis is on eco-friendly approaches, and how those specific conditions impact our larger environment over time. The aim of this research is to develop an appropriate climatic and cultural prototype, one that could be produced and developed by the prefabrication industry for New Orleans.
