We have been watching the progress of New York's micro-unit prefab prototype since it was announced. Now it's going up fast, as modules of the building designed by nArchitects are added every fifteen minutes. It's an important project in the world of prefab, being tall, urban and made of micro-units, sort of a tiny house tower.

You can see a slideshow of the project's progress here, but Melissa Breyer followed a module on her iPhone:
