There exists a long tradition of architects designing houses for themselves, something that continues to today. Yet very little attention is given to the unique circumstances these projects represent.

This story hits home for me, literally! I inherited an architects home built in 1969. My uncle studied at IIT in Chicago under the great Mies van der Rohe. Yes, less is more, and the "outside views" are a huge factor in the interior aesthetic. Yes it is a big rectangle and a flat roof and it is a very special example of MCM architecture.

 

This article speaks for itself and the photos and comments are insightful.

Watch a House Go From Flatbed to Fully Built in Less Than a Day: Richard Rogers Architect

Watch a House Go From Flatbed to Fully Built in Less Than a Day: Richard Rogers Architect | House planning | Scoop.it

If you're familiar with architect Richard Rogers, it's likely through buildings like the Pompidou Center and the London Shard, where the structure is put on display. But Rogers is also pioneering a new generation of flatpack prefab housing...

The 80-year-old architect is the subject of a retrospective at London's Royal Academy this summer; in the courtyard of the neoclassical building, curators invited Rogers and his team to build one of their three-story prefab housing units, which typically take less than 24 hours to construct. The architects explain the advantages on their website:

The panels have the advantage of being lightweight, very fire and water retardant, and even earthquake and hurricane proof. A patented jointing system ensures high levels of both acoustic and thermal insulation and the system offers the potential to reduce energy bills by up to 90%...
