industrialized
Customization in Architecture


Short description

Japanfabrik The significance of industrialized production is gaining momentum originating from the level of materials, parts and pieces culminating in the final assembly of whole structures and buildings. From the 1990ies on, modern manufacturing technologies allow to customize the production of buildings and its components in order to respond to esthetic demands of a unique architectural design: the former schism between rationalized mass production and individual character of buildings has been overcome. As soon as the customer has designed his dream house using VR technologies the Toyota production system manufactures just in time and in sequence the necessary sub modules of the house. Even though each house is automatically produced, it has its own characteristic design. Industrially produced houses are affordable, customized and rapidly available. By applying modern manufacturing technologies we can improve the efficiency of resources to achieve a sustainable economy. Major Japanese house makers have already introduced zero waste concepts in housing
