News analysis: Will modular housing reinvigorate the profession, or destroy it?


Grand Designs and the like -we all know- gave the great british public the idea that you could have a better home. Most of the national housebuilders outside of the cities barely took note and have continued to produce terrible, small, cheap rubbish inflated by high land prices. The huge growth in housing associations has also given impetus to open the door for skilled designers to perform. The obvious benefits of good modular design in workmanship, specification, speed of construction, means there is an open door for imaginative architects to get more involved in mass housing, an area we were effectively excluded from for 40years. There is now huge investment money looking at housing for a safe place to guarantee solid returns, why do you think L+G entered the market. They are a huge game-changer for the housebuilders. Just wait til L+G start looking at 1,000ft2 houses and bigger.
