Architects must embrace modular or end up ‘sad old Jedi knights’


For the same reason that they sell more flat packed furniture than preassembled Robert, as is noted by Ian. Moving large complete modular units to site from the factory is too costly and difficult compared to moving and erecting large but sectional components and the overall programme savings are not great enough to compensate.
