In 1961 John Habraken published Supports - An Alternative to Mass Housing. In it he suggested separating the permanent building structure from its adaptable fit-out using component building. This would provide some of the economies of batch industrialised production and offer people initial choice and later adaptability in their dwellings. With Age van Randen he later set up a component sourcing/production facility and design service to offer this housing process.
