As the CA Boom extravaganza approaches, we thought we would look at who is in the Prefab Zone. First up is our beloved Marmol Radziner Prefab. They burst onto the scene at Dwell Magazine's Prefab Now fifteen months ago with their stunning desert house, still perhaps the most beautiful prefab on this continent. Now we can see the Utah house shown above, renderings for 13 custom prefabs in the works, a subdivision in Joshua Tree and who knows how many standard models. What a track record in such a short time.
Marmol Radziner is unusual among architects in that it had a factory to do millwork and detailing, so it was a natural step to expand to do complete buildings. Green aspects of their buildings: use of responsible woods, SIPs, solar panels, natural cooling and recycled steel construction, and of course, efficient factory built construction. ::CA Boom Prefab Zone
